Baby Rhino Rescue ambassador, Isaac, is determined to bring the message of orphaned rhinos to his peers at Collegiate American School (CAS). Shortly after joining the ambassador program, he
made it his personal mission to involve other kids in adopting a rhino.
After hearing about how rhino poaching is affecting the rhino species, Zayn decided he had to do something to help. With much excitement, he organized a used toy and book sale to raise funds for
the baby rhino. He donated the proceeds to Baby Rhino Rescue.
It is important to remember the impact of human actions on our physical environment. It is also important to remember that the impact is also felt by other species that live in those environments
too. For this reason, Isaac, gave a presentation today at the wonderfully progressive learning center, Wisdom Warehouse in Dubai.
BRR’s ambassadors Isaac and Eve visited a Grade 1 class today to share why baby rhinos are important to the environment and humans. The key message was that rhinos are an ancient
species important that should not go extinct. The learners were introduced to some new and big concepts such as biodiversity, keystone species and eco-engineering!
At only 7 years old, Eve is the youngest ambassador at Baby Rhino Rescue. After learning as much as she could about the rhino, and having observed presentations by her brother, Isaac, Eve
decided it was time to do her own. Today, Eve did her first solo presentation to the KG2s at Dubai American Academy showing that one is never to young too young to be involved in rhino
conservation, or the protection of endangered species.
We have a new member to our Ambassador team! Zayn has shown tremendous concern for baby rhinos, and demonstrated his commitment to helping save rhinos
from extinction by raising funds to send to orphaned baby rhinos. Today we are proud to welcome Zayn to our ambassador team and to partner with him in this important project.
BRR is proud to announce that ambassador, Isaac, was awarded a certificate from his school for social responsibility and global citizenship. This award was in recognition of the dedication to
raising awareness for Care for Wild Africa’s baby rhinos, and having generated much excitement for the protection of rhinos.
Collegiate American School (CAS) in Dubai has demonstrated true global citizenship yet again! Earlier this year, their Grade 2 learners were motivated to adopt a baby rhino by BRR’s ambassador, Isaac Kriel. After hearing about the trauma that young rhinos suffer, they very quickly raised funds to adopt baby rhino Forrest.
BRR’s ambassadors, Isaac and Eve, spent 3 days at Care for Wild Africa sanctuary, to learn first hand what it takes to care for a rhino. The visit also gave them the opportunity to see how the work
they are doing benefits orphaned baby rhinos.
In order to learn more about rhino poaching, Isaac and Eve sat with Care for Wild Africa’s Director, Petronel Nieuwoudt, to discuss the problem. From this amazing woman, who has been fighting
rhino poaching and caring for orphaned baby rhinos for the past 16 years, they learned about the difficulties involved in caring and protecting them from imminent threat.
World Rhino Day is the time to celebrate this majestic, prehistoric, keystone creature. Baby Rhino Rescue’s mission is to invite people to participate in saving the rhino from extinction. The Youth
Ambassador program appeals to young kids to do just that.
Baby Rhino Rescue’s Ambassadors, Isaac and Eve, were invited to Dubai American Academy (DAA) to address their student council. Isaac and Eve were received by an incredibly enthusiastic
and supportive group of students from grade 3, 4, and 5 who were very eager to learn more about why rhinos are endangered.
Baby Rhino Rescue ambassadors launched our stunning range of hand embroidered t-shirts at their school market. At the same time, they spoke about why baby rhinos are orphans and how buying a t-shirt helps the babies. There are many proud kids and parents wearing their new garb knowing that they have done something good in the world today.
It takes $5 a day to feed a baby rhino – that’s all. This is easy-peasy for our ambassadors and friends! They took to the streets to sell homemade ‘lem-nade’ to thirsty passers by on a hot morning in Dubai. They were able to feed 10 rhinos that day!
WOW! We are so proud of an international school in Dubai. In support of Baby Rhino Rescue, through a 3 week RHINO EXTRAVAGANZA, students have spread the word about rhino poaching by hiding FACTS around their school. They made a stunning paper mache rhino for a mascot.
This is action from eco-leaders at an international school in Dubai! Meet papier-mache rhino DORA made from the 3 week rhino extravaganza held at their school. How a-DORA-Able is this? Dora says: Rhinos count. Let’s be the voice for rhinos!
1000 kids, 1000 steps = 1,000,000 footsteps. Footsteps that say no to rhino poaching in Africa. After learning all about rhino poaching, at the end of the second week of their rhino extravaganza, these school kids did this symbolic march across Africa. Culminating in a beautiful big banner with their footsteps imprinted in colorful paint, this kids added the voices to the fight against poachers. They are our heroes and we are so proud of them. Let’s all be voices for rhinos.
Our youth ambassadors presented on rhino poaching to ClarionSchool in Dubai. They have been spreading the word about rhino poaching and encouraging other kids to be leaders.
We are thrilled to be partnering with The Crash to help save rhinos from extinction. The Crash are a South African based group of students who are passionate about protecting rhinos.
After selling Lem-Nade earlier this year to make sure baby rhinos got their milk for the day, Isaac, our youth ambassador said: “Be creative, You can do any activity you want. It takes $5 a day to feed a rhino. $5 is so little, anyone can do it”.
Kids in Dubai were recently involved in a 3 week rhino extravaganza during which they learned all they could about poaching. Part of the campaign involved writing letters to President Zuma (South Africa) about the rhino crisis.
What have Baby Rhino Rescue and its youth ambassadors been up to? Their school year-end with a number of fun-filled activities aimed at making school kids into little activists!! At one international school in Dubai, in partnership with BRR, lots of learning about rhinos took place, led by the school’s very own student council.
