When the orphaned rhino was sent to the orphanage, Laura was in charge of taking care of him. She called him Kabelo. Kabelo lost his mom due to illegal animal hunting when he was very young. That’s Laura gives the poor animal very special care. She was always by his side for his first five days in the orphanage. She deeply understand how lonely Kabelo was. Kabelo seems to sense her love, he lay his trust in his human friend. Day by day, the bond between them gets much stronger. Laura finally realized, she not only has a mission to take care of rhinos, but she also has to raise her voice to protect rhinos and animals from illegal hunting.
