Weily Family Inc has been given a fostering gift from The Matrons. The orphan rhino we are fostering is called SOLIO and we will foster this rhino until its reintegration back into the wild. Solio was not even 6 months old when she was discovered in the bush. At that stage she was far too aggressive to get close to her, and it took several weeks of "tickling" with a home made broom with leaves in the end to help her feel safe in her new environment. Solio has had two keepers with her almost constantly for nearly 3 years now. Amazing dedication and care.
