BeMoreRhino

Tuesday 14 April 2020

#BeMoreRhino is an interactive programme of activities for everyone to do at home to learn more about rhinos and rhino conservation. 

Over the coming weeks, we will be uploading an array of factsheets, quizzes and activities to this page for you to download and complete in your own time at home. Each week we will have a different theme to the activities and for our first week we would like to introduce you to the rhino and hippo orphans.

Join our rhino crash and download and complete as many activities as you can and you will #BeMoreRhino in no time!

We love hearing from our supporters and budding rhino conservationists so please do let us know how you are enjoying the rhino fun and send us photos and updates of your completed activities either to rhino@helpingrhinos.org or by tagging us in your photos and posts on social media. We would love to share what you have been doing in our weekly Hall of Fame.

Keep checking back on this page for the latest activities, and don't forget to ask you parents to sign up to our Newsletter by pressing the button below to ensure that you do not miss any updates about all your favourite rhinos, hippos, APU dogs and Black Mambas anti-poaching team.
