Explaining the partnership Dereck Joubert, CEO of Great Plains Conservation, says “An important and exciting day for rhinos today. As you know we are moving 100 rhinos to secure locations in Botswana as a collective effort with our friends in conservation and in tourism operations. Rhinos Without Borders It is a joint venture with wildlife officials in Botswana, a sanctioned and valid project.
Each rhino is going to cost us about $45,000 to move and this is beyond the reach of most of us, so Jolene one of the young editors who works for us came up with a new concept and spoke to “Trevolta” a crowd funding group that raise sponsorship money for people who want to travel for a cause.
Well we have some rhinos who want to travel for a cause too (their safety) but have a different ‘currency’ to what we need, so the Trevolta team embraced it. The great thing about Trevolta is that you can donate as little as $1 and as much as you like. There are rewards for donations, but the real reward is an emotional one: saving rhinos.
These rhinos need your help and this is one way to do that without breaking your bank account.
Conservation is now in the hands of many, not just governments and wealthy donors, because the future of wildlife is on all our hands. This is a ground–breaking way to fund a major initiative and get involved. I’d love you to take a look and send it to as many friends as you can. Collectively we can do this.”
