conserving our rhinos

SANParks recently announced a significant donation towards the conservation of Rhinos by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation (HGBF). This donation marks the biggest donation ever to be given to SANParks at a value of R225 million. The donation will be used to fund a three-year initiative to combat rhino poaching in the Kruger National Park and for the testing of anti-poaching tactics which can be applied in other regions of Africa, where poaching has been found to be a source of funding for armed groups.

Mr Buffett’s understanding of the use of rhino poaching, as well as other wildlife crimes, as sources of funding for warlords and terrorists motivated the noteworthy donation. By helping put a stop to the wildlife crimes Mr Buffett also intends to help create more secure environments for locals to live in.

Sybrin commends Mr Buffet’s efforts and in our own capacity support the conservation of Rhinos by purchasing Rhino Force bracelets from The Bead Coalition to share with our valued clients. We encourage you to support this worthy cause by going out and purchasing your Rhino Force bracelets from the Bead Coalition or feel free to contact us at [email protected] for more information.
