Our Rhino Projects
The Rhino Parade is an innovative Rhino conservation fundraising campaign based on the internationally renowned Cow Parade concept. It is aimed at profiling the plight of South Africa’s rhino and creating public awareness around the crisis that we as a nation are facing, whilst raising funding to support the rhino conservation efforts. We work closely with Celebrity Rhino ambassadors who are tasked with decorating a ¾ life size rhino sculpture to represent their personal message around rhino poaching. Wildlands is working closely with like minded organisations to find a long term solution to curb the rhino poaching crisis. Our partners and ourselves have developed 4 strategies that will provide a coordinated and effective response to the crisis we face.
- Supporting the establishment of a network of NGO’s working together to stop the poaching (Project Rhino KZN www.projectrhinokzn.org)
- Project Rhino Tracker – Piloting innovative GSM based tracking technology.
- Project Rhino Aerial Support – Complimentary helicopter surveillance.
- Project Rhino Investigations & Prosecutions Support
In support of Project Rhino, we have launched Rhino Parade which aims to raise the funds required to do the work mentioned above whilst continuing to raise awareness around the plight of our Rhino.
