Our unique aggressive conservation method includes state-of-the-art security, a successful breeding programme, and a team of passionate rangers with one goal: prevent wild rhino extinction.
Our 300-plus Southern white rhinos are like family. We risk our lives daily to protect them. No expense is spared.
But this is where we need your help.
“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.”- Earl Duiker, Rockwood Security
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.How you can support us
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.
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.
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.
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 35 litres of milk a day!LEARN MORE ABOUT RHINOS
