In August 2019, a group of boys from Eton College will travel to South Africa, for an incredible physical, mental and spiritual Wilderness adventure. Their itinerary will include a Wilderness Trail in the iMfolozi game reserve in KwaZulu-Natal. This reserve is world renowned for its rhino populations. In the 1960’s Dr Ian Player set up Operation Rhino, to protect the species from extinction.

Students from Eton taking part in rhino notching

After living close to rhinos in the wild, the boys will take part in an anti-poaching programme in the Pilanesburg Game Reserve. They will spend time with the veterinary staff who work closely with these remarkable animals. Your donations will support rhino darting and ear notching, which are critical to the conservation efforts in the reserve. This will be a unique opportunity to get close to and touch a sedated Rhino. The boys will also observe and learn from the conservation and anti-poaching teams about white and black Rhino and the peril they face due to poaching.

The boys are aiming to raise £2,000 to take part in this crucial conservation project, which directly contributes to the welfare and protection of rhino in South Africa.

The Rhino poaching crisis in South Africa (as well as other wildlife crime) is of international significance. In 2017, 1028 rhinos were lost to poachers – that’s nearly 3 every single day. Thank you for your support of this very worthy cause.
