WE PROUDLY SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING RHINO PROJECTS
THE WATERBERG LIVING MUSEUM
An appeal to CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES and BUILDING SUPPPLIERS to help build tame black rhino bull Metzi a safe boma where he can continue being an ambassador for his species. Clive Walker, synonymous with rhino conservation and the role he played in saving the species, together with his family established The Living Museum in 1997. Focussing on public education, many thousands of children visited the museum, the highlight of which was to experience tame black rhino. In 2008 the museum was forced to close its doors as a result of a land claim, and during that same year Clive and Conita Walker lost one of their beloved hand-reared black rhino in a brutal poaching incident. It is our pleasure to be promoting the Walker’s Living Museum, to visit their website click here.
It is StopRhinoPoaching's great pleasure to have fascilitated the meeting of Alda du Plooy, Bongani Chenera and Ferayi Mukonde with the Walker family of The Living Museum. Alda first contacted StopRhinoPoaching with a strategic partnership request in February 2011, with the incredible idea of building a life size wire rhino. Her wire design, recycle art and skills development studio - The Little Shoppe - is based in Hermanus, and having met this dynamic lady with a passion for art and community projects, it was clear that her project and The Living Museum project would work wonderfully together.

SAVE THE WATERBERG RHINO
Save the Waterberg Rhino was started in November 2012 in association with the Waterberg Biosphere and Stoprhinopoaching.com. We had one mission; to help raise awareness and support for the war against rhino poaching. Save the Waterberg Rhino enjoys a close working relationship with many recognised role players, their opinion and experience proving invaluable when identifying projects and allocating funds.
Supporting Rhino owners, Private Reserves and General security in the Biosphere is a primary objective and as such, the majority of our resources are channelled in this direction. Click here to view the website.
