- The Dingo family are all about saving endangered animals and spread awareness across the globe
- Recently they enlisted the help of Springbok ruby player Ross Cronje
- Cronje and the family worked with a team of vets to help a rhino who was the victim of a poaching attack in 2010
The Dingo family are passionate about saving the world and the animals that inhabit. The family started a Youtube channel to spread awareness about the plight of endangered species across the planet.
The family recently invited Ross Cronje, the Springbok rugby player, to help then help a veterinary team perform an operation on a rhino which had its horn poached in 2010.
Briefly.co.za learned that the family draw a great deal of inspiration from the late Steve Irwin and often quote him on their show according to goodthingsguy.com.
“We love wildlife, all areas of it. From deadly animals to the cuddly ones, we are passionate about them all."
Steve Irwin once said, “If you can’t excite people about wildlife, how can you convince them to love, cherish, and protect our wildlife and the environment they live in.”
"We are hoping to excite each person who views our videos and hopefully help inspire a deep love in their hearts for our wildlife.” The family said.
The Dingos and Cronje joined forces to help with ‘Saving the Survivors’ project where they helped Thembi the Rhino recover from her horrific attack in 2010.
Thembi survived the attack but suffered for years because her attack went unreported. A team of vets sprang into action to help the injured rhino.
The injured rhino underwent a number of procedures where they used reconstructive surgery and elephant skin to patch her nose. The operation took place in November 2017 and was only a temporary measure to bring some relief to Thembi.
Cronje is featured in the video below where an operation offering a more permanent solution is used. Some of the images may be distressing.
