About the group
Andy and I are raising awareness of the plight of Rhinos worldwide by taking on the 3 peak challenge in June 2016 wearing Rhino suits! We hope you agree this is a great challenge for a fantastic cause!
We'll be updating our page regularly and you may even see us out and about training by wearing 1.5 stones (9kg) of weight in preparation for our challenge!
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
Thank you for your support!

Fundraising for Save the Rhino
Save the Rhino International works to conserve viable populations of critically endangered rhinos in Africa and Asia. We recognise that the future of wildlife is inextricably linked to the communities that share its habitat. By funding field projects and through education, our goal is to deliver material, long-lasting and widespread benefits to rhinos and other endangered species, ecosystems and to the people living in these areas.
Save the Rhino works to conserve all five rhino species and helps support 17 long-term rhino conservation programmes across Africa and Asia.
Save the Rhino helps fund a number of rhino conservation activities including:
Anti-poaching and monitoring patrols that detect and deter poachers and gather information about rhino ranges and numbers
Community conservation programmes that develop sustainable methods by which local communities can creatively manage natural resources
Environmental education programmes to teach children and adults about the importance of preserving natural resources and address human-wildlife conflict issues
Translocations so that rhinos from established populations can be reintroduced to former habitats
Demand reduction activities that aim to reduce the demand for rhino horn from Asian countries such as Vietnam, through public awareness campaigns
Veterinary work, such as implanting transmitters into horns, or snare removal
Captive breeding programmes, that are used when rhino species fall to incredibly low numbers
Every year more and more rhinos are being killed for their horns, with over 1,000 rhinos killed in South Africa alone during 2013. At the current rate of poaching rhinos could go extinct by 2026.
Rhinos are being driven to extinction, they need your help today.
