Last year Wildlife ACT Fund, Prima Toys, Pick ‘n Pay and Animal Planet teamed up to sell baby rhino soft toys in order to raise money to assist baby rhino orphans in iMfolozi, South Africa.Animal Planet and the Wildlife ACT Fund ran a competition for all who purchased a baby rhino soft toy to enter. They could stand the chance of winning a three day stay for two with Wildlife ACT field monitors in Zululand and a chance to experience wildlife conservation first hand.[caption id="attachment_6768" align="aligncenter" width="403"]

She spent time tracking and monitoring wild dog and checking the camera traps in the area for monitoring purposes. She also had a chance to visit the rhino orphans that were helped by this project and see how well they are doing. For three days Karen witnessed conservation in action and we were incredibly grateful for her contribution.[caption id="attachment_6769" align="aligncenter" width="832"]
