Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our team is supported by a highly qualified veterinary group and ground support vehicles that transport the rhino to the care facilities at the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary. Our state of the art care facilities house the rhinos during the early stages of their rehabilitation process where they are integrated with the other rhinos. They receive the highest standard of care, feed and veterinary support during this process thus ensuring full rehabilitation. All rescued rhinos will be released into their natural habitat which is protected from potential poaching incidents and other treats. A highly qualified security team consisting of rhino monitors, canine tracking units, mounted patrol units and an armed reaction unit which are permanently on duty to ensure rhino security.

Over 50 percent of our operating expenses funds the security that the rhinos and staff members need. The rest of the donations go to the care that rhinos need to be stabilized medically, for good feed and shelter. We work with government and private game rangers and land managers to locate the baby rhinos that have had their mothers poached by the black market trade which has led to widespread poaching of rhino horn.

We have an educational community outreach effort to have our local communities embrace the care of animals for future generations. This, teamed up with anti-poaching efforts we hope will reduce the amount of wildlife being poached, and help save rhinos.

We have an active following of donors on our Facebook and Instagram social media sites that are watching rhinos in our care. They are strong donors and we thank them for their confidence in us to provide the highest quality care for our rhino orphans. We cannot do this without funding from so many great people around the world.

We are caring for more rhinos than ever. Care for Wild has formulated a baby rhino treatment plan and we are having great success in saving them. We are getting the anti-poaching effort out in the form of documentaries and stories about what we do. Our most recent documentary effort is "Save this Rhino" from National Geographic and Outside TV Channel. We continue to grow our programs to other areas to save more species as donations allow.
