MyPlanet Rhino Fund

Close to 10 000 rhinos already lost to poaching in the last decade.

These ruthless organised crime operations are constantly becoming more sophisticated in their methods.

Our gentle giants are counting on us for help!

South Africa holds most of the world’s precious rhinos and has been hit the hardest by the poaching crisis. An army of supporters is needed to help protect these incredible animals.
Together, we can fight the poaching war.

Help our rhinos, without it
costing you a cent!
