In Memory of Farni, Tuca and Jonas

Funds were raised by the N/a'an ku sê Foundation and Khao was transferred to the Roman Catholic Hospital in Windhoek where he received multiple skin grafts and on December 2012 he was discharged from the hospital and moved to N/a’an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary for more rehabilitation.  He has since made a full recovery and returned to his family. 

GUY GRIEVE WHO WORKED WITH US ON THE FILM SAID 'FARNI, TUCA AND JONAS WERE ALL MEN THAT I DEEPLY ADMIRED, RESPECTED AND LIKED. THEY LIVED AND WORKED FOR THEIRFAMILIES WITHIN A WILDERNESS REGION THAT, AT TIMES, HAS NO MERCY. THEIR WAY OF LIFE WAS ALREADY AT THREAT AS THE MODERN WORLD ENCROACHED AT EVERY ANGLE YET WITH THOSE MEN LIVING THEY STILL HAD A CHANCE. I CANNOT IMAGINE THE IMPACT THAT THEIR LOSS MUST NOW HAVE HAD UPON THAT COMMUNITY. MY ONLY, VERY SMALL,COMFORT IS THAT THEY KNEW THE DANGERS OF THEIR WILDERNESS JUST AS I KNOW THAT THE SEA COULD ERASE MY EXISTENCE WHENEVER IT CHOOSES'.
