My Skeleton Story, by Francois Malherbe

I remember a time when I built small mole skeletons by sticking the bones on a piece of paper using super glue.  Amazingly the hobby developed to a point where, some years later we had a fully grown giraffe skeleton standing in our front garden.

Hope for Rhinos

After surviving a poaching attack in 2015 a white rhino from the Eastern Cape in South Africa was viewed by many as the icon for anti-poaching groups.  The 6-year old calf, dubbed “Hope” after surviving the attack, sadly died of intestinal infection on 15 November 2016.
