SAVING RHINOS

Privately funded Rhino Rescue Expeditions

THE IMPACT

Your contributions, no matter how small, will have a big impact on helping to raise funds to pay for the following: 

1) Veterinarian fees.

2) Helicopter and pilot fees to track the rhinos at risk of being poached. 

3) Costs associated with ear notching and tagging the rhinos for identification and tracking purposes. 

4) Ground support teams. 

5) Lodging costs during the expedition. 

Joining a Rhino Project Expedition is a great way to meet new people who are inspired to travel with a positive hands-on change approach through supporting local communities, environmental and wildlife conservation efforts.

Man Ex will be running privately funded Rhino Project Conservation trips in 2019 for those who want to get "hands on" with rhinos in the wild as part of our conservation efforts to protect and save more rhinos from poachers. You will have the opportunity to be directly involved in the ear notching, tagging and medical testing process with our Rhino Rescue Team in South Africa.

Your participation in this project will help greatly to fund the infrastructure required to support our rhino rehabilitation efforts and to restore the ever-dwindling rhino population numbers.
