Who we support

EDUCATION, PROTECTION and RE-LOCATION are what we believe are the vital components to the survival of the rhino species. This three pronged approach is how we believe we will win the war on poaching.

EDUCATION

Education of the public - tourists, locals, school children - all are equally important to educate. If people are in the dark as to what is going on, they will never be able to be fully engaged in helping to solve the problems we are facing.

PROTECTION

Protection of the rhino - We have brave men and women on the ground and in the air fighting to protect our beautiful wildlife each and every day. These rangers are often faced with very dangerous encounters and we want to support them as best as we can.

RE-LOCATION

Re-location of the rhino - an initiative to move some of South Africa's rhino to the safety of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. This is about taking rhino from high density populations which are being hit hardest by poachers and moving them to an area where we can secure a breeding ground in a location that boasts the best anti-poaching record.....a rhino safe-haven.

Our Horn Is NOT Medicine is proud to support three main projects at this time:

The BatHawk Project is a light aircraft, which patrols wildlife reserves around the KNP area in search for any suspicious activity. The aircraft has a tremendous impact on monitoring and is essential for surveillance of the enormous reserves in the area.  Our pilot works closely with the men on the ground, alerting them to poaching activity as well as the movement of the Rhinos.

Rhinos  Without Borders is a conservation project in which & Beyond along with Great Plains Conservation and government ministries has committed to moving 100 rhino from existing high density populations in South Africa.  Releasing them into various parts of Botswana, a country with stringent anti-poaching measures. The aim of the project is to increase geographical spread of the wild rhino population, which will decrease the threat of extinction due to poaching. The project aims to raise $8 million in funding, 30% of which will be invested in continuing conservation and protection in South Africa, 40% going to the re-location of the 100 rhinos to Botswana, and the final 30% going to anti-poaching and security in Botswana.

South African National Parks (SANParks) Honorary Rangers aims to create public awareness and raise funds to supply much needed manpower and equipment to supplement various conservation initiatives within South Africa's National Parks. These parks currently home the majority of the worlds rhino population.
