South Africa has the largest population of Rhinos in the world and is an incredibly important country for Rhino conservation. 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.

 

The Wilderness Foundation/Eton College Rhino Ambassadors programme was set up in 2017, to support the Rhino protection programme in the Pilanesburg Game Reserve.

  

In August 2019, a group of boys from Eton College will be travelling to South Africa for an incredible physical, mental and spiritual Wilderness adventure. Their itinerary will include taking part in a rhino darting and ear notching experience in the Pilanesburg Game Reserve and spending time with the veterinary staff who work closely with these remarkable animals. This will be a unique opportunity to get close to and touch a sedated Rhino. They 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.

Thank you for your help and generosity.
