THE TIME IS NOW
TO STOP POACHING AND
SAVE THE RHINO.

For five consecutive years the number of rhinos poached in South Africa alone has exceeded 1,000. Relentless and indiscriminate poaching means we will soon reach the tipping point – when overall rhino deaths outpace the birthrate. This iconic species is slipping through our fingers, possibly forever. We are here to take action while we still can. There is no time to waste.

 

The Council of Contributors is dedicated to supporting “boots on the ground” and “eyes in the sky” organizations who stand in the ring, day after day, with the single-minded goal of protecting and saving rhinos. Nobody can tackle this issue alone, but when we pull together and harness the power of the collective — big things can happen.

THE BACKSTORY

In my time working with orphaned rhino calves in South Africa I became increasingly affected by the strong bonds I formed with individuals under my care and the enduring, lovable personality each rhino had.

In 2017, two of those special young rhino were killed by poachers, just weeks before their release back into the wild. Their small horns were violently removed. The senselessness of their deaths inspired me to create a platform where people who refuse to fail our rhino can join forces and do something to stop this tragedy.

My hope is that all rhino are given their very best chance at survival. To live their full lives, protected and free. For that to happen we need a unified community, global commitment, plenty of gumption — and you.

Calling all Contributors. Let’s do this thing.

The Rhino Guards

When it's cold, they protect. When it's raining, they protect. When the heat is unbearable or the moon is full -- they protect. The Rhino Guards at Insimbi Legacy Projects often put the rhinos before their own comfort or safety. They watch over a very important population of rhinos in a South Africa poaching hotbed. Our respect for all who put their boots on the ground is unmeasurable. We are helping Insimbi Legacy Projects with their December costs for these amazing Rhino Guards.
