Rozanne Visagie wrote and recorded a song in aid of rhino conservation after seeing the horrific images of Thandi and Themba. Read about her inspiring journey.
Ayesha Cantor is the driving force behind Rhino Friday, the sharing of rhino related information via digital media each Friday. Find out how rhino conservationist Dr Ian Player, Thandi and her new calf Thembi inspire her.
It is fitting that our last story of how Thandi has inspired positive action is from wildlife vet Dr William Fowlds. Dr Fowlds was called on the morning of 2 March 2012 when our team found that three rhinos had been poached at Kariega. Since then he has shared the story of Thandi, Themba and Bull #84 around the world to generate awareness and raise funds for the protection and conservation of rhino. We are grateful to work with this kind, talented and passionate man.
Since 2012 the Reserve Protection Agency (RPA) has raised over R10,000,000 for conservation and anti-poaching efforts in the Eastern Cape. Funds have funded Jeep vehicles, FLIR infrared binoculars, SKATE UAV, bikes, gyrocopters and the development in an end-to-end awareness engine.
Rooting for Rhino is a group of concerned citizens who volunteer our time to raise awareness and funds towards the rhino poaching crisis in South Africa.
After the poaching of Thandi and Themba a sister team have set up Red Era and The Diceros Project. They provide marketing and fundraising assistance to various rhino organisations including those assisting anti-poaching units (APU's), rhino orphanages and rehabilitation centres.
