Saving Private Rhino - Successful Charity 2018

Aquila Animal Rescue and Conservation Centre

Saving Private Rhino (An Aquila Animal Rescue and Conservation Centre initiative)

In August 2011, Aquila Private Game Reserve was hit by a horrific poaching incident that saw three rhinos attacked, with two brutally killed and de-horned. The "Saving Private Rhino” initiative was immediately established to ensure the future conservation of Africa's rhino and wildlife heritage.

Free counter-poaching security training courses are available to teach rangers how to protect themselves as well as their rhinos and wildlife populations. In addition,"Saving Private Rhino” now has a team of dedicated and experienced staff and veterinarians that, in the event of a rhino emergency, offer a free National 24-hour Rapid Rhino Response service that includes immediate support, rescue and rehabilitation, a rhino orphanage and rehabilitation centre, and a K9 anti-poaching training centre. 

In this difficult time, with rhino extinction looming, our facility offers; free proactive training, a reactive helpline and rapid response, a reactive rehabilitation and orphanage centre.
