We are spotlighting institutions and people who are making a big impact on animal welfare. We will continue to release new interviews as we have them available. Make sure to subscribe to our mailing list so we can keep you informed.
The Rhino Orphanage is a registered non-profit company based in the Limpopo Province and was founded by Arrie van Deventer in 2012. The orphanage is the first specialist, dedicated, non-commercial centre that cares for orphaned and injured baby rhinos with the only aim of releasing them back into the wild. It was created as the result of a lack of a specialized place for rearing baby rhinos who have been orphaned as a consequence of the current poaching crisis which feeds the illegal trade in horns.
Helping Rhinos invests in critical projects that have the greatest potential to protect the black and white rhino in Africa. They support partners in the field that not only demonstrate a commitment to rhino conservation; their protection and reproduction in their natural habitat, but who also recognize the importance of local community involvement – employment opportunities, business creation opportunities, and education in local schools. Simon Jones founded Helping Rhinos and has led the organization in its growth allowing the organization to achieve tangible results in its goal of protecting rhino in their natural habitat.
It is such a huge privilege for me to host Hello Animal Talks and bring these fabulous speakers into your awareness. I hope you enjoy your time with them as much as I did, and that you come away from the interviews with lots of new knowledge and fresh thoughts to ponder.
