Project Details

It’s time to take real action. It’s a widely known fact
that rhinos are on the brink of extinction – but not if we do our part in saving and protecting them.

The Rhino Momma Project was born when the son of the owner, was tasked to do a school project on conservation when he was 16 years old. The assignment included an oral part and he settled on talking about saving the White Rhino from extinction by populating Namibia and Africa by breeding as many calves as possible on our reserve.

This idea inspired us to take action and the first Rhino was purchased in August 2011, a five-year-old bull that we named Cedrick.

To establish a breeding pair, a White Rhino cow with a heifer (female calf) were purchased at a game auction in May 2012. By January 2013, we celebrated the arrival of the first calf and with that, the Rhino Momma Project took off!

With these events, a deep love was born for the Rhino species, and we have since dedicated our lives and resources to protecting and breeding these magnificent animals!

In our mission, we are passionate and deliberate in our actions to save the magnificent White Rhinoceros from extinction, and we do this through anti-poaching, conservation education, and as a top priority, breeding new calves to repopulate Namibia and Africa.

We envision a world where wild Rhino numbers are stable and increasing and more importantly, where Rhinos are safe, and protected by communities that have a profound appreciation for them. 

From January 2013 to March 2022, 124 calves were born at the Rhino Momma Project! 

Be a part of saving this iconic species from extinction. They need all the help they can get with round-the-clock feeding and behavioral observation, data management, admin, the general well-being of these animals and so much more. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work up close with these beautiful animals and be a part of their legacy.

By volunteering with us, you will do exactly that. Taking care of such large, magnificent animals is no easy task, therefore any extra helping hand is greatly appreciated not only by our team but especially by our rhinos.

Social Impact

The massive rise of rhino poaching has made waves throughout the world, as it becomes more evident by the day that if drastic action isn’t taken, our future generations may very well come to know the rhinoceros as an extinct creature. Taking action requires innovative ideas and ingenuity, and the Rhino Momma Project did exactly that, we took decisive action in an innovative manner, and as a result, have made a significant difference in the growing numbers of rhinos in Namibia.

Since the first calf was born at the project, 124 calves were brought back into this world! This means the species have moved 124 individuals further away from extinction. Not only do we try to repopulate Namibia and Africa, but we also aim to protect the already existing species by a 24/7 anti-poaching strategy to protect all of our animals around the clock. 

Furthermore, we wish to create a community that cares for and protects the species as much as we do. Therefore, our team has started a conservation education program, in which we raise awareness of the severity of the threats that the rhino faces, why we urgently need to act, and how anyone can help.  

The time to act is now.
