We can share some really cool news! This afternoon Kevin Richardson (better known as the Lion Whisperer) arrived with young Nicholas.
Kevin has donated this young hand-reared male spotted hyena to SanWild. Young Nicholas will be joined up with Rafiki tomorrow and we are all very excited about our new spotted hyena conservation program. Once the two young hyenas have accepted each other; hopefully sooner than later they will enter the final rehabilitation phase that will see both released to the wild to become our first spotted hyena clan.
