Rhino Monitoring, Botswana
2021 - Support the Rhino Monitoring in Botswana - Donation of USD 10'000

Conservation in Africa in 2021 is still a big challenge. Due to Covid-19, tourists are staying away and funds for nature conservation are lacking. It is absolutely vital that the rangers can continue to do their job and protect the rhinos.

This is the work of the Rhinos without Borders monitoring teams, who protect rhinos in cooperation with the Botswana Defence Force. Unfortunately, the international syndicates are also active in Botswana and since mid-2018 we see an increase in rhino poaching in Botswana. The government has now recognised that even more must be done to protect the rhinos.

We would like to thank all donors who have helped to protect the rhinos in Botswana during this difficult time.
