WHAT DOES MY DONATION PAY FOR?
Finding and safely capturing newly orphaned rhino can be a hard task. With very difficult terrain in Zululand, a helicopter is often needed as well as a capture team on the ground. With the funds raised, Wildlife ACT is able to sponsor the associated helicopter costs for these operations, which is a costly but essential part of rhino conservation.
Another portion of donations go to sponsoring baby rhino formula, which is not cheap, but forms an important and much-needed part of their diet. A big thanks to all those who have already donated; you have helped keep these little chaps healthy and strong!
Due to the increased poaching pressure we are faced with, it has also become essential to upgrade the security of the bomas where the orphaned rhinos are being housed. Wildlife ACT uses donations to cover the costs of installing security systems with live camera feeds, allowing rhino caretakers to keep a watchful eye on the little ones 24/7 and ensure they are eating and staying strong. Our goal is to ensure that they remain healthy and safe until such a time when they can be released into the wild.
Thank you again for your support.
