Help Save the Rhino and Win

It's no secret that we love our rhinos. We even refer to ourselves as the Rhino Crash! So this year, on the 10th anniversary of World Rhino Day, we wanted to take the opportunity to honour this special species while at the same time raising money to help protect these real-life unicorns!

So, this year we're launching our Rhinos Saving Rhinos Fundraising Competition to help support our Impact Partner Wildlife ACT with their rhino dehorning programme in South Africa. Although rhino dehorning might seem like a drastic measure, it's proven the most successful way to protect our endangered rhinos from poachers.

We're on a mission to raise over $100,000 to help support and fund Wildlife ACT's incredible conservation work. And by entering our fundraising competition, you stand a chance to win a holiday as well as the opportunity to partake in one of these exclusive rhino dehorning experiences.

Rhino Africa and our Rise Africa Foundation

At Rhino Africa, everything we do is centred around leaving a legacy in Africa. And with the creation of our formalised grant foundation, the Rise Africa Foundation, in 2016, we're able to channel our outreach and fundraising initiatives on a much greater scale.

We believe in partnering with centres of African excellence rather than creating them because we're keenly aware of the talent and ingenuity already existing on this continent. Therefore, Rise Africa acts as a vehicle for change between donors and beneficiaries. This allows us to make a real tangible difference in protecting our continent's wildlife through empowering our Impact Partners, such as Wildlife ACT, in their conservation efforts.

Meet Africa's Wildlife Superheroes, Wildlife ACT

Rhino Africa's Impact Partner Wildlife ACT is a non-profit trust that specialises in protecting Africa's endangered species, such as the rhino, to save them from extinction. They do this by safely monitoring, capturing, transporting and reintroducing animals to new areas. They also help educate the rural communities living around these reserves about the impact of poaching on the species and foster respect and love for rhinos.

Other anti-poaching measures include rhino dehorning. Removing the rhino's horn is proven the most effective and cost-effective strategy to deter poachers. And because rhinos use their horns to showcase dominance, they also ensure that they quickly dehorn the entire rhino population so that they are all on an equal playing field.

  • What work does Wildlife ACT do to help save the rhino?

    They help protect various species from extinction. To protect the rhino, they help dehorn them to deter poachers, as well as safely capture, transport and release them to new areas where they will thrive and to boost population numbers. They also continually monitor these rhinos with tracking devices to ensure they adapt to their new environment.

  • How does removing the horn affect the rhino?

    Rhino horn is made from the protein keratin, just like your nails and hair. The rhino therefore does not feel a thing. At the same time, Wildlife ACT removes the entire male population's horns at the same time to ensure that there is no dominance due to some having horns and others not.
