Spread The Word, Save The Rhino

RhinoProtect understands that the horn treatment in itself is only half the battle won. Educating and informing the public about this treatment, and the potential it has to stop the illegal trade in rhino horn, is another challenge.

New technology has made it possible to reach more people than ever before and we believe it will be much easier to convince poachers and end-users that our rhinos’ horns are useless than it would be to change deeply ingrained beliefs, however misguided they may be.

In April 2012 Inverdoorn and RhinoProtect hosted a music concert with the legendary reggae group The Wailers as the headline act. The Stand Up! concert was successfully supported by the media and the public, spreading RhinoProtect’s message and making a great impact on the people of Cape Town. This is only the beginning.

The cause would be ineffective if our guests and followers did not share the information through their networks. Inverdoorn Game Reserve is geared towards raising awareness and educating visitors about the importance of wildlife conservation as well as warning potential poachers that our rhinos are protected. All major entry points are sign-posted with graphic warnings to poachers that our rhinos’ horns are worthless and not fit for human consumption. Literature on the horn treatment and the movement can be found throughout the lodge, including flyers at reception, and the rangers will gladly answer any questions you might have.

We know that there is much work to be done, but by helping us to get the word out across our various social media platforms we believe that, together, we can make a difference.
