Spread the word about rhino poaching and win a rhino sponsorship package


Stop Rhino Poaching

As rhino poaching continues to plague Southern Africa, Mahlatini is endeavoring to halt the poaching of these peaceful creatures through public awareness. If the mindless slaughter of our rhino population continues we may be the last generation to witness this placid brute in the wild.

Mahlatini is offering to sponsor a baby rhino, a female called Temba, meaning hope, whose father was recently butchered for his horn, in return for the public spreading the word about the devastation rhino poaching is inflicting on the survival of this species.

Temba is a new resident at the Amakhala Game Reserve, a conservation area where animals are re-introduced to the areas they once freely roamed. Born in February of 2011 she arrived quite by surprise, her mother, Nomvula, apparently carried her pregnancy very demurely. Temba will stay by her mother's side until she is 3, after which Nomvula will look for a new breeding partner.

Stop poaching rhinos

In 2009 rhino poaching robbed us of 122 rhinos, in 2010 that figure catapulted to nearly three times as much. Sadly 2011 sees this trend continuing as more and more of these creatures fall victim to unscrupulous poachers.       

Please help spread the word and stand a chance to win sponsorship of Temba in your name.

Help Mahlatini stop rhino poaching by entering to win a rhino adoption under your name! Mahlatini have teamed up with Amakhala Game Reserve to raise awareness of rhino poaching in South Africa.
