Weʼre raising £10,000 to help protect the rhino at Mankwe Wildlife Reserve, South Africa
- United Kingdom
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We recently sent an expedition team to Mankwe Wildlife Reserve in South Africa. The aim of the trip was to discover the fascinating flora and fauna of Africa, whilst gathering resources and gaining an insight into the conservation issues faced here.
After spending the week with Lynne MacTavish and the rest of her team at Mankwe, hearing their stories and understanding the daily struggles that come with protecting this endangered species from the dangers of poachers, the team all felt compelled to take action and raise awareness of the issues faced which could easily bring both the black and white rhino to extinction.
ZooLab has given itself an ambitious target of £10,000 to be raised within 12 months. This money will go towards a number of things including: food and enrichment for the anti-poaching dogs, petrol for on site patrol vehicles, increased anti-poaching team, improved reserve infrastructure and additional security equipment.
Please check out a blog of our trip available on our website www.zoolabuk.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/ZoolabUK/
We appreciate all of your help and support as we work together to help make the world a better place!
