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 have anything to say about it. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups

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, they took decisive action in an innovative manner, and as a result, they have made a significant difference in the growing numbers of rhinos in Namibia.
 
Be apart of saving this iconic species from extinction.  They need all the help they can get with round the clock feeding observation, data management, admin and the general well being of these animals.  

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to work up close with these beautiful animals and be a part of their legacy.
