Golf Day – Sept 2022

A SMASHING SUCCESS FOR RHINO SAFETY!

With 400,000 hectares, The Waterberg is South Africa’s biggest wildlife area outside of Kruger National Park. What makes it so vital is that with 2,000 or more rhinos, it is the biggest concentration of rhinos in the country now. The area is circled by layers of security and no rhinos are being poached! BRR Founder Helena Kriel and SA director Karina Suter attended the Save the Waterberg Rhino gathering in March 2022 and learned that one remaining area in the Waterberg is not protected, and this area makes the entire region vulnerable. Our mission was clear — raise money to protect this area! BRR reached out to our friends Conserv Earth and the two organizations planned a splashy golf day to make this happen. Six months later we held our Golf Day in September for World Rhino Day and R500,000 was raised. That’s more than $27,000! These funds will be used to purchase smart security systems for vulnerable areas.
