WILDLIFE CONSERVATION

We seek to make a real difference on the ground for our rhino and other large mammals. Our projects include, but are not limited to, wildlife crime prevention support, rhino dehorning, support for rhino calf orphans, and ranger support initiatives.

EDUCATION

We subscribe to the philosophy wisely espoused by environmentalist Baba Dioum, when he said, “In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught.” Through innovative content, we engage with children in the school environment, encouraging consideration of the environment, and more importantly, action.
 
We believe change and passion starts at grassroots level, so creating awareness through education and school visits are a big focus of ours.
Our school visits include taking our life sized fibreglass Rhino, called OLLI, to schools and talking to the youth about Rhino, the poaching crisis as well as other conservation issues that we are facing. We also make use of our NPC’s educational worksheets which are translated into many languages and are focused around relevant issues. These worksheets allow for the children to spend more time thinking about the issues while they colour in the pictures and it is also something that they can take home and share the information with people out of the school arena who may not have heard about these issues.


Everyone has the ability to make a difference therefore we try and develop critical thinkers and change makers, challenging people to use what they have in their hands to make a difference in the conservation landscape.

ACTIVISM

We are a public voice for our wildlife, petitioning policy makers to do better, calling for greater accountability in our judicial system and relevant institutions, and generally pushing for responsible decisions and action pertaining to our rhino.

COMMUNITIES

It is impossible to separate the needs of our communities on the borders of our game parks, from conservation initiatives. We need the buy in and participation of all stakeholders. Our community outreach programme strives to improve the lives of impoverished children through the provision of basic foodstuffs, sanitary pads, masks, and other items sorely needed by them. Our giving always goes hand in hand with conservation education.

AWARENESS

We create awareness around the subject of rhino, and other large mammals, with the goal of providing knowledge, and prompting action. We urge people to “move from caring to doing” through creative use of social media, mainstream media, cycling expeditions, and events, including our international virtual initiative, the OLLIMove.
