Your donation of $45,000 to Rhinos Without Borders unlocks this extraordinary experience: witnessing the relocation of a rhino from a heavily poached reserve in South Africa to a safe one in Botswana.
Rhino poaching is at an all-time high in Africa and is increasing at an alarming rate. Since 2008, 6,102 rhinos have been
poached in South Africa. With a rhino killed every eight hours, more of these African icons are now being lost to poachers
every year than are being born.
Where appropriate, the rhinos will be transported by air as opposed to road, in order to shorten the journey and lessen
the amount of stress placed on the animals.
Botswana has been carefully selected for its extremely low poaching rates, thanks in part to its “no tolerance” policy when
encountering potential threats. Each rhino, when translocated, will be fitted with specially designed telemetry devices for
ongoing research and monitoring purposes.
The dream became a reality when the first batch of rhino were successfully translocated from South Africa, by air, and safely
released in their new habitat. By taking action, Rhinos Without Borders has already succeeded in moving 77 rhinos from a
high-risk poaching zone and significantly decreased the likelihood of these endangered animals being killed.
Leave a legacy and be transformed by safeguarding the future of these critically endangered, magnificent creatures.
“My wife and I wanted to travel through Chile, Bolivia and Peru and were slightly daunted by the logistics of organising such a varied trip.John Resse, USA
