Rhinos Need You to Save Them - Now or Never.

Our Mission

SAVE THEM ALL

RESCUE & CARE

When the call comes on the emergency line those responsible for rescuing orphaned animals know the next 24 hours is crucial. If an animal can be found within that crucial time window the chances of survival are much greater. The threats in the first couple of days are huge.

OUR ORPHANAGES

It is difficult to know how hard it is to save a baby rhino. The world’s first specialist rhino orphanage was only opened in 2012. Orphanages are at the forefront of the battle to help save the species. They give rhino orphans, who lost their mother due to poaching, a second chance to survive.

RELEASE

We ultimately need to provide a place of safety rhino when they are released from the love and care of the orphanages. Now or Never African Wildlife Trust aims to create a minimum of ten strongholds. These will be areas large enough to sustain large populations of rhino …

Why We Need to Act Now

RHINOS IN THE WILD MAY FACE EXTINCTION IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS

Rhino calves stay with their mother for 3-4 years

Baby-Rhinos depend on their mother to teach them how to survive and prosper. Female white rhino reach sexual maturity at around 6-7 years and give birth to ONE calf only about every 4 years!! Mother and calf become inseparable, with grazing beginning at about three months and weaning occurring at around one-year-old.

24 hours – that’s all we have to save them

Predators will hunt down and kill baby rhinos – Finding, securing and treating a rhino calf quickly in often inhospitable terrain is a mighty challenge. Off road vehicle capability is vital but more important is airborne support in the form of helicopters. Help us to safe them – Now! Or never!

Rhino Orphanages – love & care they deserve

Traumatized and badly hurt need our help – Baby rhino need the same level of attention as a human child.  That first acceptance of the bottle rather than mum’s natural milk is critical. Twenty-four hour care for days on end. Treating trauma and wounds that are still relatively little understood by vets. One hour at a time. Hour after hour.
