Summary

Fact The Black Rhino is listed as critically endangered and the white are threatened. There is a belief that the horn of a Rhino will cure a number of illnesses but this has never been proven. Regardless horns are sold at a very high price making the illegal trade of sale highly attractive to poachers. These poachers will stop at nothing and easily kill hundreds of rhino's just to get the horn and sell on then illegal trade market. We need to act NOW

Challenge

Rhino poaching is a devastating problem across both the public and private sectors. Everyday at least three rhino are poached in South Africa predominately due to lack of resources and intelligence. We are fighting a war with criminal masterminds who are forever 2 steps ahead of the protectors on the ground. The financial incentive to rhino poachers combined with very high unemployment figures in rural communities, mean that poachers will force entry into these reserves to get a shot at a Rhino.

Solution

This project has multiple elements to it; 1. Closed Rhino Rehab Centre - Our centre is closed to public because we really do reintroduce them into the wild and allowing too much human interaction can prevent this. 2. Anti poaching - we use K9's, retired racehorses to help with reserve perimeter patrols to help keep the reserves safe from poachers (this also save on fuel) 3. Emergency Response to poacher alarms 4. Community Outreach - engaging children to be ambassadors for us in the community

Long-Term Impact

We have already seen a huge success in this project with a decline in successful attacks but the attempts are still happening. We hope to provide awareness and education to breakdown this illegal trade and ensure the rhinos do not die out.
