Thula Thula Rhino Fund: Protect and preserve rhino's against poaching and horn trading

This petition had 887 supporters

Thabo and Ntombi are both orphans who were relocated at Thula Thula from Moholoholo Rehab Centre when they were 4 and 8 months old. They have now been released into the game reserve under high surveillance.Armed guards accompany Thabo and Ntombi 24/7 to protect them against poachers. With a gunfight having taken place a few months ago – as Thabo got shot in the front leg – as well as the loss of Heidi, a female white rhino who was killed by poachers in 2009, the need for increasing protective measures is a harsh reality. In memory of Lawrence Anthony ("The Elephant Whisperer") the THULA THULA RHINO FUND was established (as a chapter of Earth Org) in order to raise funds for guards, anti poaching training and much-needed specialized equipment, to ensure the on-going survival of our rhinos, as well as to acquire more orphans in the future.

A simple donation of $1 goes a long way!
