The Rhino Momma Project
It’s time to take real action. It’s a widely known fact that rhinos are on the brink of extinction – but not if we have anything to say about it.
The Rhino Momma Project is a non-profit organisation that’s made a significant impact in not only protecting our rhinos, but also growing the rhino population. Since purchasing our first rhino in August 2011, we’ve made it our mission to help save this magnificent species from extinction by breeding as many rhinos as possible, all in an effort to repopulate Namibia and Africa with rhinos. This is no small task, but with your help and support we can turn back the clock and protect one of our continent’s most precious wildlife species.

Rhino horn trimming
As a means of protecting our rhinos, the horns of all our rhinos are regularly trimmed to make them less attractive to poachers.
This is a quick and painless procedure for the rhino, however, a very expensive one for the project. Therefore, we largely rely on donations to be able to do the horn trimming, in order to keep our rhinos safe.
How you can help
There are only two Northern White Rhinos left on the planet. Both female. If poaching continues at its current pace the Southern White Rhino will join them at the brink of extinction in our lifetime.
90 of the estimated 21 085 Southern White Rhino left, call Rhino Momma Project home. Here our main purpose is to grow these population figures by providing the best environment, feed, security and veterinary services rhinos need to flourish.
Legalization of the rhino horn trade.
Listen to Alex Oelofse as he speaks about the legalization of the rhino horn trade, how it could help rhino conservation, and the plight that these magnificent animals are continuously fighting.Read More
