Rhino Relocation 2018, Botswana2018 - Claudia travels to Botswana! - Donation of US$ 22,500
The aim of Rhinos Without Borders, Great Plains Conservation & andBeyond was and is to translocate at least 100 rhinos from South Africa to the safe haven that is Botswana.
The SwissAfrican Foundation has received written confirmation from Great Plains Conservation that a donation of US$ 22,500 from us will be matched by a wealthy donor from the United States, effectively doubling the initial donation and allowing us to fund the translocation of another rhino. The SwissAfrican Foundation is extremely proud to have now funded the translocation of two of the hundred rhinos that now live in Botswana!
Many thanks to all who support us!
