Mavlab has made a donation to the Taronga Zoo Rhino Appeal.
Four out of the world's five rhino species are in critical danger. All five species are under threat from habitat destruction or illegal poaching and there's now a very real chance we could lose them forever. The Taronga Zoo Rhino Appeal is taking donations to continue their ground breaking breeding, research and conversation programs, including their work with the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Indonesia.

BONA the Orphan Elephant
Bona is a two-year-old orphaned juvenile elephant currently in care at the Seblat Elephant Conservation Centre (ECC) in Sumatra, Indonesia. Bona was rescued in March 2011 from a palm-oil plantation, after she was found caught in a snare with no sign of her mother, and wounds around her neck and trunk. Sadly, she is now completely alone.
Bona weighs a tiny 182kg, a result of her extremely poor and insufficient diet primarily comprising of just two watermelons per day. An elephant of Bona’s age would be naturally drinking milk from her mother, and her overall body condition is very poor; she is suffering from malnutrition, has curvature of the spine and is very weak.
Mavlab has donated 2 x 25kg Balanced Calcium Powder to aid in the rehabilitation of Bona the orphan elephant... Should you wish to help please follow this link http://savebona.chipin.com/save-bona-the-elephant
