About Us

Save the Waterberg Rhino was started in November 2012 in association with the Waterberg biosphere and Stoprhinopoaching.com. We had one mission; to help raise awareness and support for the war against rhino poaching.

Save the Waterberg Rhino enjoys a close working relationship with many recognised role players, their opinion and experience proving invaluable when identifying projects and allocating funds.

Supporting Rhino owners, Private Reserves and General security in the Biosphere is a primary objective and as such, the majority of our resources are chanelled in this direction.
