The 18 month old calf, who survived the second poaching incident was aptly named, “Lucky Max”, a very special rhino, and ambassador for Save the Waterberg Rhino. Max was found dehydrated and severely traumatised, desperately calling for his mother, who did not respond.
It wasn’t an easy journey for this remarkable little rhino but it was because of him, and his tragic story – having his mother taken from him by men with loud guns, that the founders were driven to start the project.
Max and his mother can be seen in Save the Waterberg Rhino’s emblem. He will always be an inspiration, and a reminder of a promise that was made to protect his species and STOP THE KILLING.
