POACHED: the story of 'Geza'

Meet the unsung heroes of the Rhino poaching crisis
Feb 21, 2012
The ACT Rhino Fund's goal is to raise R10million for urgently needed rhino anti-poaching priorities in South Africa that are implemented by legitimate conservation groups that support large groups of threatened rhinos.
More than 2,000 rhino have been killed by poachers in South Africa between 2008 and 2012 and there are alarming signs that 2013 will be the worst year on record, with a projection of over 800 rhinos likely to die at the hands of globally-controlled criminal poaching syndicates, many of whom have links to international terrorist groups. The threats to brave South African rangers and anti-poaching units grows daily: they need support - now.
In 2012, 400+ South Africans jumped from 10,000ft in ACT's Skydive for Rhinos campaign and generated R3,4million in donations. An additional R3million was pledged by companies, trusts, foundations and international donors for innovative anti-poaching projects (to be received during 2013). Added to the inaugural (2011) Skydive for Rhinos campaign that raised R500,000, this brings the total raised by the ACT Rhino Fund for South Africa's threatened rhinos to nearly R7million.
