Help save a rhino
We’ve partnered with Project Rhino KZN, an initiative that sees like-minded associations united to put rhino poaching to an end. Our mission is to show them our support in any way we can. For every GoRhino membership you purchase, we contribute towards Project Rhino KZN’s cause. Saving you rand’s while saving the rhinos!
Purpose and Scope
Project Rhino KZN brings together organisations with a common vision and goal, identifies synergies through an integrated, common approach, and collectively is a representative body which carries powerful leverage ability.
To secure all rhinos in KwaZulu-Natal from the threat of poaching so that their numbers continue to increase and contribute to the national and global rhino populations, for the benefit of current and future generations:
- Prevent duplication of projects / fundraising events;
- Consolidate resources for maximum impact;
- Create a common vision;
- Create credibility with the general public;
- Educate the public and rural communities bordering KZN game reserves;
- Collaborate, support and promote PRKZN members;
- Ensure collaboration, coordination and communication;
- Create a space for information sharing and a community of learning;
- Create a credible platform for fundraising and partnerships;
- Provide a centralised communications hub to media, public, government and global like-minded organisations;
- Maintain records of activities and actively engage with each member;
- Conduct reviews, benchmark successes and identify shortfalls in poaching interventions.
Objectives and focal areas:
- Increased intelligence capabilities – information and informant networks;
- Increased surveillance – using both traditional and new technologies (aerial etc.);
- Increased field ranger competency (training);

Together, we can help bring this majestic animal back from the brink of extinction.
