SRI’s involvement

Save the Rhino has fundraised for HiP since 2005-6; initially this was through an EAZA Rhino Campaign. Save the Rhino now fundraises for HiP from general funds with funding going towards essential ranger equipment, microlight running costs and construction of a hangar for the plane.

Several Save the Rhino staff members have visited HiP over the last five years.

Other funders

SRI has solicited financial support from the USFWS on behalf of Hulhluwe-iMfolozi Park. These grants pay for field ranger camping (tents, backpacks, water bottles, etc.) and rhino monitoring equipment (cameras, night-vision monoculars), Land Cruiser tyres, and for the training of two Section Rangers, Dirk Swart and Lawrence Munro, to receive their Private Pilots’ Licence, in order to carry out aerial monitoring using a Bantam microlight.

SRI has also received grants on behalf of HiP from Colchester Zoo’s Action for the Wild fund (about 6,400 euros per year). We received a one-off donation of 3,000 euros from Salzburg Zoo and more recently a 2,000 euro donation from Safari de Peaugres. A recent grant from The Foundation Friends of Safari Park Beeksebergen has also helped provide much needed funding to maintain the Nquemi Horse establishment in the iMfolozi Reserve.
