ABANDONED BABY RHINO VOLUNTEER - STH AFRICA
et my hands dirty with designing, building, cleaning and maintaining wildlife enclosures. As a conservation volunteer i will have the oportunity to learn the processes involved and become responsible for the continued development of the animals being hand reared, including responsibility for the youngest animals which are being hand-reared.
For a minimum period of 2 weeks at the very least!
This would be a dream come true for me. I want to make a difference!
I have applied for a position with www.volunteersa.com and now just need help with funding to make this amazing life experience a reality and to be able to get the chance to be involved and support one of the most amazing programs to help rescue orphaned baby rhinos before its too late and we loose this species forever!
AND due to personally feeling so motivated to help this crisis in any way I can. Every donation over $30AUD made towards my volunteer trip - I will donate 5% of it to the www.babyrhinorescue.org organization and i will post images, shoutouts and updates via my volunteer campaign site of each and every donation made!
We need to get behind this and do what we can! While we can!
Thanks for your time :)
Rhino is short for rhinoceros. This name comes from the Greek words rhino, meaning nose and ceros, meaning horn. Cool huh?!
Since 2008 poachers have killed at least 5,940 African rhinos......
Rhino poaching is currently at a crisis point.
By the end of 2015, the number of African rhinos killed by poachers had increased for the sixth year in a row with at least 1,338 rhinos killed by poachers across Africa in 2015.
Although it is encouraging to see South Africa’s poaching levels fall slightly, poaching losses are still extremely high. 40 fewer rhinos killed in 2015 than in 2014 is statistically insignificant when you’re talking such large numbers of poaching deaths.
