Support Onguma's Rhinos

Personal message

The Anti-Poaching Units on Onguma are wholly dependent on tourism to finance their anti-poaching operations. With the COVID Crisis, Tourists cannot travel and the unit is not receiving any funding.

This crowdfunding campaign will assist the unit to continue with their essential task of looking after endangered Black rhino and other game within the Onguma Private Nature Reserve until guests start returning to Onguma again. We aim to raise US$ 50 000 by February 2021.

The impact of raising funds to help this anti-poaching unit will be monumental in the fight against rhino and elephant poaching. Due to COVID, poaching pressure is increasing and without any funding from tourists, this anti-poaching unit cannot fulfil its mandate to protect the wildlife on Onguma.

Many rhinos and other game will die at the hand of poachers as a result of a lack of anti-poaching activities.

It costs US$4000 per month to keep the anti-poaching unit operational and to protect our Rhinos.

Funds raised will be used exclusively to support the salaries, wages, fuel and rations of our rangers, enabling them to keep up their wildlife protection duty and services.

 

*As per the campaign creator’s request, funds raised will be paid directly to Onguma Nature Reserve*
