YOU can save these rhinos – Africa Geographic Blog

Rhinos Without Borders is on a mission to move rhinos to safe havens in Botswana in order to save them from the poaching crisis and they need your help!

“Three down, seven to go. 100 rhinos will be relocated to a new safer life and YOU can help make this happen. Of the first batch of 10 rhinos due for relocation in 2015, 3 have already reserved their places via a unique campaign – please help Dereck and Beverly Joubert help save the remaining 7. This is a unique opportunity for ALL OF US to get involved personally, rather than leave everything to the authorities and NGOs. Your donation (even just $1) will help more than you could imagine. Every donation earns rewards and enters you into a draw for some really grand prizes. This has to be the most innovative campaign ever to save the rhino from poachers. 3 down, 7 to go! (Africa Geographic)”

GR:  One dollar to save 100 rhinos?  Everyone please contribute. We must recognize, however, that following through with continued monitoring and protection is essential.  Wild animal relocations are difficult.  New habitats with new resting places, new food, new water sources, and new dangers coupled with the stress of the move…. Better make it two dollars.

“This relocation operation will take place with an assertive and elaborate anti-poaching force and strong commitment to save this species. This initiative is about taking rhinos from existing, high density populations which are attracting more and more poaching, and releasing them into the wild within a country that has low densities of rhino and the best anti-poaching record on the continent. It also secures rhino breeding diversity and provides a nucleus of stock in a different location, so that these animals are not all concentrated in one location.”
