Cipla Vet with your help donates R105,500 to The Endangered Wildlife Trust
Together with numerous supporting practices and their clients Cipla Vet was able to donate R104,500 through the Fiprotec Rhino Campaign, to the Endangered Wildlife Trust’s Rhino Fund. The money will be used effectively to aid in the fight against Rhino poaching in South Africa.
Cipla Vet would like to thank our customers for their generous support for this very successful and noteworthy campaign.
Steenberg Veterinary Clinic in the Western Cape was the winner of the Fiprotec Rhino Campaign which finished earlier this year. Four receptionists/nursing staff were treated to ultimate luxury at a premium game lodge in the Eastern Cape. And the cherry on the top was taking part in a Rhino immobilization with wildlife vet Dr Brendon Tindall. A mother and her calf were immobilized as part of an ongoing anti-poaching and data collection exercise. Their horns were micro chipped, ears were notched for identification purposes and DNA samples taken for inclusion into the National Rhino DNA database. Mother and calf happily recovered from the sedation and went on their way back into the bush.
Thank you again for your help in protecting our wonderful Rhinos.
