Just 13 more years and all Rhinos could be gone…
We support various in-country conservation projects around the world, including the Mkomazi Rhino Sanctuary, which is the only rhino sanctuary in Tanzania.
We’ve donated close to $50,000 to help care for the black rhinos who currently live at the Sanctuary. The animals living there are intensely protected by a team of dedicated anti-poaching patrols. Currently, there are only sixty-seven Eastern Black Rhinos in all of Tanzania, and together with the Tsavo National Park across the border in neighboring Kenya, the Mkomazi Sanctuary forms one of the largest protected areas in Africa. According to The Independent, “Rhinos are being killed in such unprecedented numbers that there are realistic fears they could be wiped from the face of the planet within a generation. If this happens, it will be the first major extinction of an animal in the wild since the worldwide conservation movement began.” Click here for more information on the serious and growing problem of Rhino poaching in Africa.
