Sauvez les Rhinocéros noirs

When your horn is worth gold, then you are in danger!

This is the case of the rhinoceros. This majestic animal is the largest land mammal after the elephant.

Despite his imposing build, he is not able to defend himself alone against barbarism. His horn, which is his strength is also, alas, what leads him to his loss.

It is sought after and sold at a high price, making it a coveted product and thus putting the species at risk in the face of the greed of certain individuals willing to kill for its value.

The current status of the rhinoceros

  "Black Rhinoceros: Critically Endangered (IUCN), listed in CITES Appendix I" (source WWF)

White Rhinoceros: Near Threatened (IUCN), listed in Appendix II of CITES

So we must take action to protect this species.

To do this many actors get engaged.

And we too, on our scale, can act.


This is why, as part of our safari in South Africa, we want to contribute to the conservation and protection of biodiversity, and in particular of this species.

More specifically, we want to fund the identification of a rhinoceros to ensure a peaceful life away from any risk of poaching.

Where is it going?

The action will take place in the Thanda Safari Reserve in the KwaZulu-Natal region.

This private reserve is engaged in many conservation actions including the protection of black rhinos.

Thus, the goal is to search, find, identify and protect one of the rhinos in the reserve.

When is it happening?

This operation that takes half a day is scheduled between February 21st and 23th 2019 (depending on the weather in particular).

It will take place in the early morning to avoid the heat of the day.

How's it going ?
The first step is to go in search of an unidentified rhino. A helicopter goes in search of him while a medical team joins the animal in 4x4, once spotted.

He is asleep.

Samples are taken.

He gets dehorn.

The animal is released in the bush.

And if time permits, a second animal can, in the same way, will be protected and identified.

Who are we ?

Julien and Quentin, two globe-trotters. We are passionate about discovering the world. Each time we travel, we try to have a solidarity and / or civic dimension. Whether by discovering local traditions, by supporting associations or by contributing to solidarity organizations. Thus, we have already been able (together or individually), for example to visit a child we sponsor in Thailand, to contribute to an orphanage in Cambodia, to visit and share a few days with the Dani tribe in Papua , visit an elephant retreat center in Thailand also, or volunteer at a Panda Conservation Center in China...

It is essential for us to make our travels useful and not just consumerist.

This time we see greater for a real project of safeguarding and protecting an endangered species. That's why we need your support!

Allocation of funds

A concrete project


The purpose of this fundraising is to raise enough funds to support a rhinoceros conservation operation.

We will collect the funds that will be transferred to Julien Chadeyron.
The funds thus collected will be paid in part (approximately € 1800: R27,500) to the Thanda Safari reserve for the organization of the operation.

Here is the detail of what the funds raised will be used for.

This "rhino notching" operation consists of the identification of one (or more) rhinoceros.

IN ADDITION, for every donator of 10€ and more, 1€ will be donated to WWF.

Please note that all the counterparties requiring texts will be delivered in french.


Why is it so expensive?

The price of the operation includes:

  •   the cost of using a helicopter to locate the rhinoceros to be identified.
  • the establishment of a complete team of rangers, veterinarians and healers.

  • the necessary medical equipment.

  • identification (by a ring in the ear), sampling (to recover the DNA of the animal), and dehorning to protect it from poachers.

We are counting on you to realize this project !

Bonus

If we reach 3000€, you'll all get a VR 360° video of the intervention.
