Wouldn't it be great to not have to save the rhino?
Welcome to Rockwood. This is Why we exist:
We believe what we do today, matters tomorrow
Our ultimate goal is to witness a flourishing and safe rhino population, unshackled from the severe threat of extinction. We employ bold and unorthodox conservation strategies to protect the rhinos under our care as we are convinced this is our best shot at safeguarding their future. While it's a far cry from how they would live in the wild, free from human interference, it is their best chance in our current climate. Having gone seven years without a single poaching incident, our track record speaks for itself. Every activity at Rockwood contributes to rhino conservation.

Beyond the Crosshairs: News From The Frontline
Africa’s giraffe populations are quietly diminishing. Known as the “silent extinction”, 40% of giraffes have vanished since the 1980s. Where once the continent was teeming with these graceful giants, only 68 000 now remain. Like most other species, habitat loss, poaching and the effects of civil unrest threaten their survival.
In the late 1800s, about 850 000 black rhinos existed in Africa. But, due to unregulated killing, only 100 000 remained by 1960. By 1995, just 2410 black rhinos remained. However, Africa’s black rhino population has more than doubled since the 1990s. Could we finally be seeing a payoff to decades of committed rhino conservation?
After the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, many of China's wet markets (where animals are sold as food or pets) were shut down. 'Wildlife' markets, on the other hand, sell live wild animals (often illegally obtained). The commercial sale of wild animals for pets, traditional medicines, or ornamental uses has not been outlawed.
With their massive bodies, thick, folded skins and facial horns, the rhinoceros (“rhinos” meaning “nose” and “keras” meaning “horn of an animal” in Greek) has fascinated humans from the earliest times. Read on for an overview of these incredible animals, and for a closer look at each of the five remaining rhino species’ diets.
From a population of around 10 000 white rhinos and 600 black rhinos in 2010, the numbers are now down to approximately 3 549 white rhinos and 268 black rhinos. Most rhinos were poached in Kruger National Park. If this trend continues, the entire rhino population currently protected by Kruger might be wiped out by 2030.
