Black Rhino Breeding Project
Total donations: $10,000 | Partnership: In 2000
While recognized for its dramatic landscapes, including national parks and World Heritage–listed archaeological sites, Zimbabwe suffers from extreme poverty and political instability. This paradox seems an unlikely environment for an evolving conservation community collaborative. However, with poachers encroaching upon Zimbabwe’s borders daily, the Black Rhino population continues to decrease. At the Black Rhino Breeding Project, a mostly volunteer- staffed breeding and private conservation facility, the fight to save these majestic animals continues. We support their efforts to ensure the survival of this endangered species through breeding, protection, and poach-watches. The Project hopes to stop the poaching and success- fully restore the Black Rhinos into the wild.
