One lake, one rhino

One lake, one rhino

We love it when rhino-lovers come together and do their bit to help rhinos! This summer, Ruth Nussbaum and Kyle de Nobrega launched an adventurous campaign called “One Lake, One Rhino” to raise the funds to buy one precious black rhino for Botswana.

The courageous and committed pair tackled a 60-day unassisted paddle on lake Tanganyika, one of the world’s most remote and wild lakes. They raised a magnificent $25,073, which was match funded by one generous donor, bringing the total to more than $50,000. It just shows what we can achieve, together.

In September, they handed over the cheque to Wilderness Wildlife Trust’s Botswana Rhino Reintroduction Project to contribute towards the next translocation of rhinos – in association with RCB – next spring.
