Rockwood owner, Wicus, and his teams of rangers are on guard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help protect rhinos. Health checks and collecting blood, milk and many other samples for research takes whole teams of research scientists, students, rangers and volunteers. You can help too by volunteering to work at Rockwood.

Over the last 20 years, we’ve discovered just how much a single species disappearing from an area can create unpredictable imbalances in an ecosystem.
