The true benefits
of private wildlife conservation
- A recent annual report by SANParks shows that South Africa’s Kruger National Park has lost an alarming 70% of its rhino population in the last decade.
- In contrast, private reserves experience very few poachings. Only 37 of the 394 rhinos killed in South Africa in 2020 were on private reserves. Rockwood, for one, has not had a single poaching incident in the last five years.
- In addition, our reserve has celebrated the birth of more than 160 baby rhinos to date, with 10 newborns joining our family as recently as February 2021, taking our rhino population to more than 300.
There are two things every single person in the world has in common – the planet we live on and a choice. We can choose to be seeds – small yet significant and full of potential. Or we can be parasites – self-serving, destructive, harming the very host keeping us alive, the Earth. We can choose to give more or take more.
Nature is declining globally at previously unimagined rates. One million species are careering toward extinction. How can you help end one of Africa’s most urgent wildlife crises? It doesn’t mean you have to donate financially. One of the best ways to contribute to real change in the world is to volunteer your time.
Are you inquisitive? Do you love change, adventure and discovering new places, new horizons and new ways of looking at the world? Most importantly, do you care? South Africa is home to some of Africa’s most important conservation projects where wildlife experts are fighting the threats to wildlife and biodiversity daily.
