YOU CAN PERSONALLY HELP A RHINO

You may wonder how your contribution can make a real difference in saving an entire species.

Let’s focus on just one rhino. His name is Survivor, and as a baby, a poacher shot him. Luckily, he survived, and today he is ready to start his own family.

When you help us protect Survivor, you play an integral role in adding to our growing population of baby rhinos. 

You will not only save Survivor – you will help save the rhino species.

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

Wicus Diedericks (Founder of Rockwood)

THREE WAYS YOU CAN HELP SAVE THE RHINO

An adult white rhino, like Survivor, eats up to 55 kilograms (120 pounds) of grass per day. But since we’re experiencing an ongoing drought, our rhinos don’t have enough to graze on. So we truck in tons of feed every month.
 
That’s a hefty grocery bill. And it’s just one of the many rising costs we have to cover. 

Looking after Survivor, and his fellow rhinos, is one of the most fulfilling things we have ever experienced. We’re sure you’re going to feel the same way when you join Rockwood as a conservation volunteer.

You’ll get to stay with us for two weeks, interact with our gentle giants, and leave knowing you have helped save the rhino.

Wildlife research

We don’t often read about the critical work scientists and vets are doing to help save the rhino. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to achieve our phenomenal 15% annual growth in rhino population.

We invite organisations and universities to carry out wildlife research at Rockwood, so we can all benefit from information exchange.

YOU, OUR VISITORS, PARTNERS & SPONSORS MAKE OUR CONSERVATION EFFORTS POSSIBLE.
