The Real Rhinos

The REAL rhinos are what our programme
is all about. We have selected
StopRhinoPoaching.com as our recipient.
SRP is a boots-on-the-ground organisation
that channels 100% of funds they raise to
supply projects on the front lines of
poaching with the tools and equipment they
need to protect rhinos.
Established in 2010 by Elise Daffue as a
response tp the escalating rhinos crisis in

South Africa, StopRhinoPoaching.com is
actively involved in the fight against rhino
poaching and has a national footprint for
strategic funding of security initiatives and
ranger support on the frontlines. Elise
encourages collaborative projects with
individuals and corporates, channelling their
funding and support into tangible projects
within selected key rhino areas and
reserves.

 

Rhino horn is now more
valuable per kilo than gold.

Over fourteen hundred rhinos were
killed in 2014. The need for
projects to protect them will never
end. The tragedy of rhino
poaching has been going on
for many years with hundreds of
millions of rands so far spent on
trying to save them. Is there an
end in sight? Will we finally find
ways to stop the awful slaughter?

Given the value of the product, the
marketers will not give up easily.
Vast profits go to organized crime
and to fund terrorism. Persuading
international anti-
trafficking, anti-terrorism organizations to get
involved is high on the agenda.

Under-equipped, under-funded
rangers are currently doing the job.


StopRhinoPoaching enables
funds raised by donors to be
channelled to supply projects with
the equipment or services they
need to effectively challenge the
poachers and to help stop the
slaughter.

Perhaps we will educate the
customers in the Far Eastern
countries who buy the horn about
the fallacy of its medicinal
properties. Famous celebrities are
being recruited as advocates to
persuade people not to buy horn.

Thousands of smart, dedicated
people are devoting their lives to
finding solutions. Plans to educate
local communities and make it
financially worthwhile for them to
have a vested interest in saving
the rhinos rather than helping to
kill them, appear to be working.

One day it will be safe once more
for these fabulous animals to roam
freely in the African bush.

We must never
give up on
our rhinos




 
 

Over 5000 known rhino have been poached
in South Africa in the last eight years. There are only
 some 18,900 white and 2,040 black left out of the great
populations of the past. South Africa is now
home to 74% of Africa's Rhinos.
