Rhino Notching:

Due to the costs involved in a Rhino immobilisation for this vital management operation, Pilanesberg Park Management has requested The Pilanesberg Wildlife Trust (PWT) to make this a project of the PWT to ensure that this function continues. The PWT in turn solicits donors to contribute to the project by sponsoring a “hands on” Rhino capture experience where guests actively take part and assist the Vet and Park crew during the operation. Excess funds are utilised for further Rhino Protection Projects through funding of training and equipment, etc..

By sponsoring a Rhino immobilization not only do you get to experience a ‘once in a lifetime’ event, but you also contribute to the conservation, and furthered protection, of these amazing creatures.

Please get in touch with us if you would like to take part in this incredible conservation project.
