White Rhinoceros: Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Uganda, August 2022 — Carol asked if we had seen anything besides birds yet in Uganda, and of course we have. These are White Rhinos from the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, where efforts are being made to restock the National Parks with White Rhino, which were expatriated from Uganda many years ago. From 2 donated Rhinos, they have built a herd of 30…and when they reach 50 (the capacity of the refuge), they will begin relocating them to the National Parks in hopes of establishing several viable herds. The Rhinos are wild within the protected refuge, and part of the funds to operate the refuge come from Rhino Trekking…where visitors walk out into the field (with armed rangers) in hopes of encountering Rhino. Sony Rx10iv at various focus lengths. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos.
