RHINO CONSERVATION EDUCATION

Immediate global education is the only long-term sustainable solution to secure the future of rhinos and elephants in Africa.

Rhinos in Africa is assisting the current conservation efforts by offering an education programme for children. We strongly believe that we urgently need a generation of children who actually understand the importance of the conservation of the surviving Rhino and Elephant populations

Without a new generation of educated children that care deeply about these endangered animals the current conservation efforts are all unfortunately a futile and short term solution. 

Rhinos in Africa are in the process of offering support to the organisations who respond to Rhino and Elephant medical emergencies. We support the care of injured and orphaned Rhinos. We are using these miraculous and inspiring stories to build hope and further garner support and publicity to save more survivors.Ultimately, however we feel that without education these gallant efforts might be futile.

As we have demonstrated on this website our conservation efforts have to be multi-layered. The first line of defence is protecting the animals through government anti-poaching laws which are clearly not sufficient, with military and police involvement as well as supporting private protection agencies such as Rhino Revolution. Secondly, we must support the rescue and caring of the surviving injured and orphaned rhino and thirdly, by offering education as the follow up long-term solution.  

We all need to invest in education above all else. Currently a Rhino is killed every eleven hours in Southern Africa . The Rhino species are running out of time.
