This is such a special video for me, growing up in “Ostrich world”(Oudtshoorn)made me cry, partly because of the draught, but also of how special this little creatures are and if they would survive.

Hi Ian. Yes the second male disappeared fairly soon after their arrival on Londolozi. Thanks, Amy

Great video James! How long does it take for an Ostrich chick to reach adult size? If anyone can protect these chicks, I know our amazing female Ostrich can do it. She has already beaten all the odds stacked against her for the past 3 years! Thanks for the update and I look forward to further news on how they are doing.
