Our grateful thanks and deepest gratitude to all our donors who have supported Project Rhino’s efforts this past financial year. 100% of your funding has been put to effective use in our key projects:

  • Your support has kept ZAP-Wing’s fixed-wing aircraft supporting 300,000+ HA of protected area and provided a critically-needed rhino security Operations Base at the Hluhluwe Airfield.
  • You have supported the brave men, horses and dogs of the K9 and equine units on the frontline, working to keep our rhino safe 24/7.
  • You have funded urgent dehorning projects to protect those rhino most at risk.
  • You have helped improve the skills and morale of rangers and anti-poaching units throughout KwaZulu-Natal and you have provided direct support to game reserves through the provision of equipment and other forms of support.
  • You helped us reach more than 600,000 children with an important conservation education message through the Rhino Art – Let Our Children’s Voices Be Heard campaign, and improved rural community/game reserve relations in high poaching risk areas at the same time.

All our efforts depend entirely on the support of generous donors. THANK YOU. In these tough economic times, your support means more than words can say. We can’t do it without you.
