The rhino is one of the most amazing animals on Earth and part of South Africa’s Big 5. Despite an indestructible appearance and the fact that the species has crossed millennia, the rhino is highly at risk. Rhino poaching is currently a huge problem in Africa, particularly South Africa, home to the majority of the world’s rhinos.
The fight against rhino poaching must be fought on three levels. Firstly, on the ground: fighting and trying to find solutions to protect and save the rhinos. Secondly, in court: prosecuting poachers and syndicates; and thirdly, in Asia, where the demand is concentrated, educating and dissuading people from using horn in traditional remedies and as a status symbol.
To face this desperate situation, Inverdoorn Game Reserve & Iziba Safari Lodge had to take the initiative to protect their rhinos – consequently, RhinoProtect was created. This programme is dedicated to the protection and conservation of the species.
