Education Against Extinction
Help us shape the hearts and minds of children in Zambia and save future generations of rhino through education.
With a little learning and a lot of love, the next generation of children living near a special conservation area in Zambia are becoming passionate about rhinos.
It’s the little things.
Even though they live right next door to them, rhinos today are so protected and rare that most children in Zambia have never even seen one before.
So when they can learn in a classroom covered in rhino murals, when teachers give them a Conservation Activity Book – that they can keep forever – and when they get the chance to go and see wild rhinos for themselves…it means a LOT.
Rhino education is working. And it’s causing a generational shift.
People living near North Luangwa National Park have grown passionate about wildlife. It’s a special park that saw Zambia’s only population of black rhinos grow from a terrifying zero after the species was reintroduced to the area.
To this day, the park is closed to the public and monitored and patrolled 24-7 by a specialist team of anti-poaching rangers.
It needs your help.
Your support can help us to reach more Zambian children and teach them to love rhinos. It can pay for more children to visit North Luangwa National Park and see rhinos and meet rangers for the very first time. And it can support the growing need for rangers to help keep the park and its black rhinos safe from a growing outside threat.
And, just maybe, it can help these children become rhino rangers of the future. Because they can’t love what they don’t know – so let’s help them learn to love rhinos.
