Black rhino, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi

The Covid-19 pandemic is putting rhinos in real jeopardy. Our rhino conservation partners have been heavily impacted by the global lockdown and they need urgent support to carry on their vital work. You can keep rhinos safe, wherever they are, during Covid-19.

Each month, our appeal will focus on a new rhino programme to support.

This month we are focussing on South Africa – please help us to support the teams at Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park (HiP) as they continue their efforts to protect rhinos throughout this time.

Why Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park needs your help

Like many other areas across the world, HiP has been on lockdown since the end of March, with no visitors allowed and strict health screenings for all staff. As the Park relies heavily on tourism for its income, this has put an extra strain on budgets at a time when more resources are needed.

All staff at HiP are using personal protective equipment to keep themselves and others safe, making items including gloves, hand sanitiser and face masks essential.

These are costs that no one could for see, and while they may be small items by themselves, large amounts are needed, making the costs are significant.

With your donations, we can support HiP’s rangers to keep protecting themselves, and rhinos, during Covid-19. Thank you.
