Save the Rhino International

We raise funds and awareness to conserve all five rhino species

Story

Luckily, no actual rhinos need to do any running or risk further life or limb to highlight their plight.  There are a couple of crazy South Africans who are willing to do it for them - and carry the rhino’s message around the world.

On 21 May 2016, rhino ambassadors Brad and Greg will wear rhino suits and face many challenges to achieve their ultimate goal - to spread awareness and raise funds to protect rhinos - from the heart of China.

 It is a certainty that no-one in living memory has seen a rhino running through China. This is about to change – on the 21May 2016 rhinos will be running for their lives and it is a sight no-one is likely to forget. Our quest to help protect the World’s rhinos will culminate on The Great Wall of China.

Education is vital in ensuring that rhino horn consumption is eradicated as a practice. To achieve this, awareness of the plight of rhino’s is needed, not only in supplier countries, but more importantly, in consumer countries. For this reason the Running Rhinos will be creating awareness and educating people about the plight of rhinos worldwide. To help achieve this goal we have partnered with the following organizations:

Save the Rhino International is a UK registered charity whose vision is for all 5 rhino species to thrive in the wild for future generations. To find out about their work visit www.savetherhino.org

Welgevonden Game Reserve Non-profit company is an internationally acclaimed game reserve in the Waterberg region, Limpopo province, South Africa. It is a Big 5 game reserve with a substantial rhino population and is actively involved in rhino conservation locally, nationally and internationally.

All funds raised will go directly to rhino conservation through Save the Rhino International of which 50% will go towards a rhino related conservation and protection initiatives on Welgevonden Game Reserve.
