To celebrate 25 years of Frontier we’re giving away special projects throughout the year to give more people the chance to volunteer than ever before. In this post we talk to November winner Medlody Co who entered our competition and won a two week Teaching Project in Costa Rica!
We are delighted, proud and enormously grateful to be able to announce the birth of a new baby black rhino at Frontier's Black Rhino and Elephant Conservation Project in Zimbabwe. A perfect, healthy female calf was born to our youngest female rhino, Shanu, at 3:35am on the 27th November 2014 – the best Thanksgiving Day arrival. Shanu is doing very well, considering her long 15 month pregnancy and early-morning birth of her first calf.
