We are a community organisation founded in response to the dramatic increase in rhino fatalities in Africa caused by poaching and a growing concern of the effects the illegal wildlife trade is having on the world’s rhino population, particularly in South Africa. The organisation comprises of a small, but experienced team who work on a voluntary basis in a variety of roles. Our fundamental objective is to heighten awareness through strategic campaigning and education.

The project is being developed into a comprehensive distance learning programme comprising of eight topical modules; each contains fact and activity sheets designed to enhance a greater understanding of the five rhino species and to explore the environmental and human challenges which threaten their survival. The project has been specifically designed as a multifaceted learning platform which allows each module to be incorporated into curriculum based lessons or taught as stand alone topics.

We are not a registered charity, NGO or non-
We work in association with several international advocacy groups and organisations including; Save Our Rhino, Facebook’s oldest rhino advocacy group with a diverse following of over 19,000 members who comprise of concerned members of the public, activists, conservationists, rangers, veterinarians, farmers, media personalities and politicians.
We have published several articles which deflate the controversial allegations made by lobbyists who see an international trade of rhino horns as a solution to today’s poaching crisis in South Africa. After years of extensive research we believe both domestic and international trade is a simplistic solution to a complex problem. You can read all the articles released through the campaign here on our website.
