About The Chipembere Rhino Foundation

Chipembere Rhino Foundation is an NGO run by trustees with extensive Rhino experience and assisted by a group of committed volunteers.

For 50 million years, rhinos have been roaming the earth. These iconic and charismatic animals are an irreplaceable part of our spectacular African natural heritage. Sadly, rhinos are being poached to the point of extinction. The mere 1,822 – 2,014 African Black rhino left are already classified as critically endangered, while the remaining 17,396 – 19,369 African White rhino are classified as near-threatened. Poaching levels have reached crisis point: between 2008 and 2017, 7,130 rhinos were slaughtered, with another 769 rhino butchered in 2018.
