WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT TO NOT HAVE TO SAVE THE WILD RHINOS ?

On average in South Africa, one wild rhino is killed every day. Except at Rockwood Conservation. For the past five years, we haven’t had a single poaching incident.

“The passion that drives us is not enough. We cannot save an entire species from extinction on our own. Your charitable donations will help ensure the continued survival of the rhino.”

Wild rhinos can't protect themselves. They need your help

For millions of years, rhinos have supported other lifeforms in their ecosystem. But what support have they received from us?

On our watch, they are disappearing. Currently, rhino deaths outnumber births. All for a belief that their horns have medicinal properties and convey status.

Our ultimate goal is to see rhinos walk free. Until then, we are committed to protecting and repopulating the species to prevent white rhino extinction.

To date, we have celebrated more than 130 rhino births at Rockwood.

But the battle to save rhinos from extinction is far from over. And we cannot win without your support.

THREE WAYS YOU CAN HELP
SAVE THE RHINO

Online Donations

From sponsoring an orphaned baby rhino to keeping a wildlife ranger on his horse for a month, there are plenty of ways you can play an integral role in wild rhino protection. Even the smallest contribution can help.

Helping Our Rhinos Have More Babies

Get up close and personal with our gentle giants. We are the only private rhino conservation facility of our kind that invites extraordinary conservation volunteers to get hands-on experience with us.

Wildlife research

Sharing knowledge helps us overcome the challenges we’re facing in biodiversity and wildlife protection. We invite masters and PhD students to take up a research opportunity at Rockwood.

DID YOU KNOW?
Caring for a wild rhino baby is
like caring for a human baby.

At Rockwood, we hand rear orphaned newborn rhinos. This is a critical step in preventing rhino extinction because every rhino born adds to their dwindling numbers. They need ongoing care and observation, and we love them like our children. We
even bottle-feed them every two hours.


— These little guys drink up to 25 litres
of milk a day!
