Abigail Farrow, a biology major at Florida Southern College always been interested in animals. She spent three months living at the orphanage, located so far off the grid that the nearest town was more than an hour away. Her primary responsibilities were feeding the baby rhinos and taking them out on walks, watching after them as they grazed for hours, she said, but also being careful not to get too involved in their daily routines, as the orphanage’s mission is to make them self-reliant so they can eventually be released into the wild.
