In the face of ever more devastating poaching statistics, we would like to share our story of hope. The largest airlift of rhinos ever undertaken has begun. As on the 28th April, our first group of rhinos was released into Botswana.

These rhinos will form part of a seed population that will have a chance to expand in number and gene diversity, whilst being protected by the latest technology and a specialised anti-poaching unit. We will be moving at least 100 rhinos to Botswana as part of the Rhinos Without Borders initiative in partnership with andBeyond, and we are already moving steadily towards being able to get the next group to safety.

We are proud, yet humbled by the opportunity; sad that it is necessary but grateful to everyone who has supported us so far. We are optimistic that this small step in conservation offers hope for a species on its way back from the brink of an unacceptable extinction.

We would like to thank our dedicated team and our industry partners, as well as everyone else who is helping to turn these dreams into a reality. This is only just the beginning and we hope that you will continue to stand by us as we turn the tide on the rhino crisis together. Now is a time for action; now is a time for hope.
