Nikela is dedicated to saving the wildlife of South Africa. This April Nikela is proud to bring you, Nikela Rhino Rescue, a month long fundraiser to benefit rhino conservation efforts in South Africa.
With the black rhino listed as Critically Endangered and the white rhino classified as Near Threatened there is no time to waste. Without immediate action the rhinos in South Africa are facing the serious threat of extinction.
The false claim that rhino horn contains medicinal properties has created an illegal, dangerous and very lucrative black market trade. Emboldened poachers strike at night armed with AK-47s, chainsaws and axes. Once the horns are removed, the poachers flee, leaving the assaulted rhino to bleed to death.
With your help Nikela aims to fight back. Our goal is to raise funds to cover the cost of desperately needed anti-poaching initiatives in South Africa. Often patrolling on foot or by bicycle these rangers, and the equipment they require, mean the difference between life and the extinction of the rhino species.
Join Nikela this month as we explore The Rhino. Help us spread awareness about their plight and become a part of the survival of this majestic creature. Please donate to Nikela Rhino Rescue today.
