Kariega supports the Rhino Run

Rhino Run 2014 JpgThe poaching of three rhinos at Kariega Game Reserve in March 2012, their amazing courage and Thandi's incredible survival inspired trail runner Sian O'Keeffe to take action. He decided to start a trail run, called the Rhino Run, to raise funds and awareness for the plight of our rhino.

Kariega Rhino Thandi May2014 3Rhinos are one of the few megaherbivores (plant-eaters that weigh more than 900 kilograms or 2,000 pounds) still alive. Recently their numbers have been dramatically reduced with the increase of poaching. Poachers killed over 1,000 rhinos in South Africa during 2013 and 376 have been reportedly killed by poachers this year. We simply cannot allow them to become extinct.
