The pioneering work of the society's founders led to the creation of numerous protected areas, including Kruger and Serengeti National Parks and, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

LOT 2 

Rhino made of recycled flipflops by Ocean Sole

Guide price: £200 to £300

Rhino sculpture made completely of recycled flipflop material Size: (L) 52cm W(21cm) (H) 33cm.

Every single Ocean Sole product is handcrafted to protect the oceans and teach the world about the threats of marine debris.

As a bizarre and yet very real phenomenon, thousands and thousands of flipflops are washed up onto the East African coast creating an environmental disaster. Not only spoiling the natural beauty of our beaches and oceans, the rubber soles are swallowed & suffocated on by fish & other animals, they obstruct turtle hatchlings from reaching the sea and are a man-made menace to our fragile ecosystems.

Our creative team of artisans transforms the discarded flipflops into elephants, giraffes, lions, rhinos, dolphins, sharks, turtles and more. With so much in the news currently about plastic in the ocean, these colourful masterpieces come with an important message about marine conservation whilst bringing smiles to people all over the world.

LOT 5 

Name a Black Rhino Calf 

Guide price: £1,200 to £2,000

Nabuul, the mother of the calf to be named, was a victim of rhino poaching in a neighbouring conservancy. She was found near her dead mother's body too young to fend for herself. She was moved by plane to Ol Pejeta where she was hand-reared in the safety of an endangered species enclosure, in the company of another rhino orphan - Lola. Nabuul and Lola, defying the stereotypical aggression of black rhinos, became firm favourites with the rangers and their keepers, who kept a close eye on their progress.

In December 2014, as they became less and less familiar with human interaction and approaching breeding age, a gap was made in the endangered species enclosure and they were encouraged to take their first steps into the wild. Their adoring keepers continued to monitor Nabuul and Lola and were delighted when last July 2017, Nabuul gave birth to a female calf.

A special story and a unique opportunity to name Nabuul's calf.
