Albus Environmental partnered with The Aspinall Foundation to translocate two orphan White Rhino, Makhosi and Mpilo to their new forever homes
Albus Environmental in partnership with The Aspinall Foundation, collaborated with WILDTRUST and Conservation Solutions to translocate two white rhino orphans to their forever home, Somkhanda Community Game Reserve in the Kwa Zulu Natal Province of South Africa.
The two rhino, Makhosi and Mpilo, underwent rehabilitation at a rhino orphanage and have now been successfully released back into their natural habitat. Now four years old, Makhosi arrived at the orphanage in 2016 severely dehydrated and malnourished. Two years later, Makhosi was joined by Mpilo, whose mother was brutally killed by poachers at Somkhanda when he was only 9 months old. Mpilo is now three years old, his full name being Ncenga iMpilo, which means fighting for life; a name he was given by the Emvokweni Community Trust who own and manage Somkhanda and one that could not ring more true.
Damian Aspinall, Chairman of the Aspinall Foundation said, “we will never truly understand the trauma that these two young rhinos have endured and the extent to which they still suffer from this. What we do believe, however, is that we have been able to put joy back into their lives.”

Albus Environmental, in partnership with The Aspinall Foundation, have successfully translocated three young elephant Tuskers from Tembe Elephant Park in northern Kwa-Zulu Natal, to two new homes in South Africa. The objective of this historic translocation effort was to infuse their unique ‘tusker’ genetics into other elephant populations in the country, with an end result of securing these genes for future generations.
Andrew White, Managing Director of Albus Environmental, said, ’It is our responsibility to give back and make a difference through conservation minded decisions. These animals are one of nature’s greatest treasures and we are immensely proud to be partnered in this amazing project, securing threatened genetics’.
