Victoria Falls Black Rhino Dehorning Project
WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR HELP TO PROTECT OUR BLACK RHINOS
DID YOU KNOW?
1.Over just 30 years, rhino numbers decreased by a staggering 98%
2.Global demand for rhino horn continues to threaten the species’ viability
3. In the black market, African rhino horn can fetch US$20,000 per kg! (ZAR 335,000).
4. An average rhino horn weighs between 1.5 and 3 kilograms.
WHY WE NEED TO DEHORN
- As more reserves in the region embark on dehorning their black rhino populations, syndicates are closing in on those properties where black rhinos still have their horn. They are close and they are coming in fast!
We need your help to meet our target of US$20,000 (ZAR 335,000). We will match match every donation up to the value of $10,000 until such time as the target is reached
Please help us to achieve our goal by donating to this worthwhile cause
D-Day is by 31 August 2022 – 5 weeks is all we have…
Although the permit issued by the Zimbabwean National Parks Authority is valid until 31 December 2022, the rhinos need to be darted in the cooler season (prior to September 2022) to ensure their health and wellbeing.
