Race Against Time

Building and running a new much needed Rhino Orphanage on a 6000 hectare game reserve

What is the mission: Saving baby rhinos who’s mothers are being killed during poaching operations. (Right now we are loosing an average of 3 rhinos every day) How do we plan to make a difference: For a start building and running a new much needed Rhino Orphanage on a 6000 hectare farm that we have purchased as a rhino and elephant reserve. What do we need: We need money, but most of all we need help to widen our circle of awareness and support. We need a few influential and passionate people to support us in making this happen. We have decided to go big and take on a challenge as fundraising and awareness event for the orphanage. Two friends and I will make an attempt on the world record driving from Cape town to London and back as fast as we can.We call this project "RACE AGAINST TIME”. For us it symbolises the race against time for the Rhino’s but also for our wildlife in general and ultimately for conservation and the survival of the human species.
