Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p][/p][p]We are a group of zoo volunteers who want to give Rhino Rangers in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi National Park (Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa) a practical Christmas present of basic equipment.  Rhino Rangers are totally at the front line in the war against poaching - they work long hours in the most difficult conditions, and face danger constantly - lives have been lost.  Because the work is so arduous they need constant replacement of basic equipment for example boots (£20); tents (£165) and binoculars (£110).  [/p][p]Poaching has reached epidemic levels in South Africa - Hluhluwe-iMfolozi has lost 84 rhinos to poachers as at 20 Nov 2014 - this is as many as in 2013. Experts predict that rhino populations will soon be at a tipping point where numbers start to decline - basically rhinos will face extinction if poaching is not stemmed.  Rhino Rangers are the main line of defence. [/p][p]Save the Rhino International is currently appealing for funds for equipment for rhino rangers.  All the money we raise will go direct to the rangers of Hluhluwe- iMfolozi.  [/p][p]Please help us achieve our goal so that we can give Rhino Rangers a really practical Christmas present - and a real boost! [/p][p]All your help is much appreciated[/p][p]Thank you [/p][p][/p][p]Edinburgh Team Rhino [/p]
