Rhino Conservation

Royal Malewane

Foundation

Anti-Poaching

On average a rhino is illegally slaughtered for its horn every 22 hours in South Africa. If current poaching levels continue without urgent action, all rhinos will disappear from natural habitats by 2035. South Africa is home to 80% of the world’s rhino population and towards the end of the last decade demand for rhino horn exploded. Although it has absolutely no scientific medical benefits, consumers are still using it to treat a wide range of conditions, from cancer to hangovers. The current poaching crisis is attributed to the growing demand for rhino horn in Asian countries, mainly Vietnam and China.

Royal Malewane is a founder member of the Greater Kruger Environmental Protection Foundation (“GKEPF”) which is a unique conservation initiative. GKEPF’s objective is to protect all wildlife in the central Kruger and private game reserves. GKEPF adopts a holistic approach to a problem that cannot be solved by individual reserves or lodges acting independently. They also play an active role in combating the illegal international trade in wildlife. While good work is already being done in this regard by the South African Police, Interpol and the FBI, GKEPF ensures greater resources are allocated to this effort.
