Our Target for the 2013 ride R250 000…every little bit counts
The Zululand RHINO Reserve Foundations Rhino Adventure Ride is held on the magnificent Zululand Rhino Reserve (ZRR), a 23 000 hectare proclaimed private nature reserve, home to over 70 mammals including Africa’s BIG 5.
All proceeds from the Rhino Adventure Ride go directly into the Zululand RHINO Reserve Foundation, which was established in 2011 by a group of like-minded land owners from the ZRR whose aim is to grow conservation, counteract poaching & establish & maintain a strong mutually beneficial partnership of empowerment for the neighbouring Zulu communities.
The 21st century brings with it a scourge of poaching, especially threatening our magnificent Rhino. The situation to date is so severe that an increasing number of privately owned game reserves are disposing of their Rhino, as they are considered too much of a risk in relation the rising security costs of protecting these animals. Protected, favourable habitat for these splendid creatures is at a premium, and as the ZRR is fortunate enough to have this at their disposal they are dedicated to expanding this, their range & their population.
The foundation has recognised that conservation is more about people & their views, than merely establishing game parks. The foundation is continuously working towards empowering the local communities through assistance in education, well-being & by forging mutually beneficial partnerships between the community & conservation initiatives.
- EVERY contribution made towards this foundation WILL make a difference to the lives of individuals & animals alike -
“growing conservation, counteracting poaching & establishing & maintaining strong, mutually beneficial partnerships of empowerment with the local neighbouring Zulu communities”
