In Asia, less than 50 Javan, 250 Sumatran and about 3 000 Indian rhinos survive in the wild. In Africa, there are around 5 000 Black rhinos and 20 000 White rhinos, mostly living in Southern Africa. While several rhino subspecies have been declared extinct in the wild in the last 12 years, commercial and highly organized poaching is an enormous threat to all populations worldwide. A sudden and significant upsurge in poaching in the last 7 years emerged within South Africa alone, on average almost two rhinos are poached each day.
Anti Poaching Crusade with the Support a Rhino Ranger initiative means helping these frontline heroes with keeping rhinos safe from poachers. Keeping this Support a Rhino Ranger initiative effective requires many people sponsoring new and gently used clothing, binoculars, sleeping bags, tents, blankets, hats, shoes, torches, headlamps, pocket knives and other usable equipment.
Therefore BirdsConTour donated items gathered from guests by its Support a Rhino Ranger initiative to rangers from Save The Rhino Trust.
