KwaZulu Natal - Proud home of the Southern White Rhino

Responding to today's escalating rhino poaching threats and other wildlife crimes requires a new approach: one that breaks through the traditional hierarchical, 'silo' ways of conservation operations and builds relationships between state, private and civil society, to effectively counter the adaptable, well-resourced, international criminal syndicates driving the poaching of rhinos in South Africa, and other wildlife crimes.

24 private game reserves and 8 Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife provincial game reserves benefit directly. Project Rhino KZN also tackles macro-level issues that affect all rhino stakeholders in the province and initiates anti-poaching strategies that benefit all rhino, regardless of whether they are to be found in provincial or private game reserves.

The 5 Priorities of Project Rhino KZN are as follows:

1. Rhino Security
2. Community Engagement, Education & Awareness
3. Legislation & Judiciary
4. Lobbying & Strategic Relationships (Government and International)
5. Fundraising, Public Awareness & Accountability

Main Projects

As a result of Project Rhino KZN’s ethos of collaboration, projects and campaigns in partnership with other organisations have been initiated. The Zululand Anti-Poaching Wing is a partnership between Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, private game reserves and NGOS. Project Rhino KZN’s youth initiatives - Rhino Art, the World Youth Rhino Summit and the #RhinoShoutOutChallenge - have developed in partnership with the Kingsley Holgate Foundation.
