Baby Rhino Named in Anna's Honour
Lion Country Safari, Florida’s only drive-through Safari and walk-through amusement park, has named their latest rhino calf after one of Lewa’s founders Anna Merz, who sadly passed away last week. The white baby rhino was born on April 6, 2013 to her mother Bloom after 16 months of gestation, and weighs over 70kgs.
The park is home to 14 White Rhinos – 11 females and three males. Since 1979, Lion Country Safari has had 33 rhino offspring.
The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is deeply honoured to witness the recognition of Anna’s work across the globe, and that her love for the rhino and dedication to the species’ survival remains an inspiration to many.
