The Mambas Expand

Thanks at least in part to all the donations that our supporters on GlobalGiving have provided, The Black Mambas Anti-Poaching Unit has been able to expand to another area!

The Mambas program has been brought into another area of the Balule Game Reserve nearby world-famous Kruger Park and has added an entirely new group of 6 Mambas to the fold! As such, the world's only all-women unarmed anti-poaching unit has expanded to cover the Makhushane region as well!

In addition, three of the Mambas have been trained on using Belgian Malinois as tracker and canine protection for the Mambas while on patrol. These dogs will bring an additional level of safety, security, and detection abilities to the Mambas while they are searching for evidence of poachers.

We are incredibly proud of all the work that the Mambas are doing, and are equally grateful to you all for all that you have helped these amazing women and men make happen. 

Yours in Conservation,

Happy canine, happy Mamba!

Here's to 2019!

Riding for Rhinos
Riding for Rhinos

Pedaling Against Poaching finished out 2018 with a strong finish.

I personally completed 5520 miles, and the Pedaling Against Poaching Strava club topped out at over 125,000 miles!

I continue to see a steady organic growth to the number of followers and supporters.

I’m going to make the same commitment for my mileage for 2019. Riding the equivalent to the length of Africa from north to south.

We are starting off the year with some wonderful raffle prizes and local events to raise awareness and hopefully raise some much-needed funds

I plan on continuing to support the Zululand Rhino Orphanage and Transfrontier Africa.

I’m looking forward to an even bigger year in 2019 and am grateful to you for all you have done to make such amazing things happen on behalf of rhinos!

Children Change Culture

Children change cultures
Children change cultures

Children really can change culture. As anyone who has ever had a child of their own, or has been a very involved aunt or uncle can attest, when the child has an idea or an opinion about which they’re particularly passionate, they will not stop until everyone around them is aware of that. This fervor and determination can change culture, both in the short term and over the long-term.

It is for this reason that our Reducing Demand For Rhino Horn Education Program in the United States has been so effective. In 2018 we reached almost 1000 students, through the assembly and class presentations.

In addition we reached several hundred more students that used our curriculum, one that is constructivist, student lead, and incredibly engaging! Our curricula are standards aligned, and have been adopted by a dozen schools across the country. 

As you know, China and Vietnam are the largest consumers of rhino horn globally. Unfortunately, the United States runs in third place, because of the large number of people from that region that we are fortunate enough to be able to call neighbors and friends in the United States.

It is for this reason that we work with teachers in primarily Asian communities across the United States. If you have friends or neighbors that are teachers and they would be interested in using our curriculum, for having us visit their school, these ask them to reach out to us!

Thank you for all you have done to make our Reducing Demand For Rhino Horn Education Program such a success!
