More ways to save rhinos

A fun new mobile app and a "walking with rhinos" competition are the latest tools to protect this iconic African mammal.

So far this year we have lost 480 rhinos according to the latest figures from the Department of Environmental Affairs. That brings to 1654 the total killed since 2008, which is when poaching numbers started to see a sharp increase.

WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) has come up with two new ways we can help protect rhinos. Sales of a fun yet awareness-raising mobile gaming app, “Rhino Raid”, directly benefit WWF-SA's rhino conservation work. Read more about the app and download it here.

Also, between now and 30 September 2013, every time you swipe your MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card in support of WWF-SA, you are entered into the lucky draw to win a rhino walking safari from Isibindi Africa Lodges in the Kruger National Park. Apply for a card or add WWF as a beneficiary - it won't cost you anything.
