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.
3 PROJECT AREAS
What we do is focused, nimble and uncomplicated. It is to identify and fund 10 to 12 key projects per year. We partner with large, small or grassroots organizations who save and protect rhinos on a day-to-day basis — and we support their needs.

We are extremely excited about our current project with the Sera Rhino Sanctuary located in Northern Kenya. This partnership falls under NRT (Northern Rangelands Trust) established by conservation legend, Ian Craig. NRT is the first community-led Conservancy which is successfully transforming lives, securing peace and protecting the environment and wildlife — including 3-year old black rhino orphan Lolijipu, pictured on the right.
Spending time with the team up there again was truly inspiring and we will be announcing our new project soon which will support the Sera Rhino Monitoring Team.
With thanks. Long live the rhino,
- RHINO MONITOR TEAM: CAMP UPDATES -
Rhinos can’t save themselves. It will be up to people. It will be up to us. The CoC's 25th project is about championing 12 individuals who live to protect rhinos from harm and the unimaginable. We are building a new kitchen, 2 showers, 2 toilets and a hand washing area for the Rhino Monitor Team at Sera. None of these amenities currently exist for this team who live in the bush and protect the rhinos 24/7. We need all the help from you we can get to improve the living conditions and camp life.
