Despite living through the most challenging times of a generation, our conservation experts will demonstrate what is needed to protect the rhino and its habitat. Room to ROAM will show you our vision for a future of Rhino Strongholds across Africa and how we will need your support to make these a reality.

Rewild an ACRE

With your support, we will restore the wild flora and fauna of more than 400,000 acres of designated landscapes in Africa to sustain precious ecosystems for rhino – Rhino Strongholds.

These special wild spaces will be home to as many as 500 black and white rhino who will be able to roam freely in their natural habitat.

Protected wild landscapes are the cornerstone to successful conservation efforts. Maintaining populations of keystone species within those areas remains a constant challenge. African protected areas are failing to mitigate human threats to large mammal populations and the future for wildlife and their habitat, without international support, looks very bleak indeed.

In Sub-Saharan Africa the human population is expected to double to 2 billion by 2050 (United Nations World Population Prospects – 2019). The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed more than 32 million people into extreme poverty (IMF, April 2021). Displacement of low-income rural households and incompatible land use surrounding protected areas will increase the probability of encroachment and degradation, severely impacting environmental sustainability for iconic wildlife species.
