In the summer of 2017 a group of boys from Eton College travelled to South Africa to support our rhino protection initiative
The rhino poaching crisis (as well as other wildlife crime) is of international significance and affects all levels of society. Since 2008 poachers have killed at least 5,940 African rhinos……
“Every 8 hours, another rhino is killed in South Africa…and the number is growing”
During the summer of 2017, the Wilderness Foundation UK and Wilderness Leadership School had been undertaking a rhino conservation project in the Pilanesburg Game Reserve.
The rhino protection programme is being supported by boys from Eton College through the Wilderness Foundation/Eton College “Rhino Ambassadors” Programme.
The boys have been working to raise the funding needed to undertake the conservation project – in the region of £2,000.
All funds raised through this appeal will directly contribute to the welfare and protection of rhino in South Africa.
