Welcome to the Rhino Peak Schools Challenge. Contribute to the conservation of our endangered species, join the Wildlife ACT team - help us to save our Rhino & Vultures.
Each year the Underberg area of the Southern Drakensberg plays host to a unique conservation fundraiser, the Rhino Peak Challenge (RPC). The Challenge requires participants to ascend the iconic Rhino Peak and, in so doing, raise crucial funds for conservation. All the funds we raise goes to the conservation of these two critically threatened species.
For those who cannot join us on site - we would like to extend an invitation to you to join us as virtual ambassadors (RPCAs) for 2022. The virtual RPC is just as important as the actual challenge, with participants getting involved from all corners of the globe. Get involved in this awesome event.
It costs approximately R35 000 to dehorn a Rhino and fit it with a special tracking unit, it costs approximately the same to tag and fit a tracking unit to a Vulture. These survival of these species is crucial to our own well being.
Host an event to raise funds for Rhino and Vultures, encourage your friends and family to get involved, come up with fun team names, challenge other running clubs to raise more/run farther, run/walk/swim/skip - whatever floats your boat - any distance in support of the RPC.
There will be special prizes for those who run the furthest and those who do the most Vert (GPX track required). A prize for the most interesting Strava art. Run 21km to match the 21km of the actual RPC, do 1220m of Vert to match the actual RPC. Reach out to friends overseas and do a virtual RPC relay. Run in your garden. Use your weekly time trials to support the RPC.
Paint a Rhino or Vulture, hold a raffle, host a civvies day – it all makes a difference, no matter how big or small, the options are endless and every cent counts.
We will use our social media reach to secure donations and support your campaign messages. Send us any pics or vids of your festivities (email or WhatsApp 0825780612) and tag us and @rhinopeakchallenge on social media so that we can share the love.
