Wildlife, such as Rhinos, are nearing extinction at an alarming rate! if we don't continue to ask fast, future generations are at risk of never having the experience of seeing a live Rhino and entire ecosystems are at risk of catastrophic changes with the loss of keystone species. It is possible for 1 person to make a difference and if we spread the word and come together as a group, we can make an even bigger impact! Your donations help support 3 incredible organizations that are at the forefront of conservation and are making a huge impact in saving animals from extinction. Learn more below and find additional information at each of their websites!

We will also be hosting raffles throughout the duration of the event so keep an eye out for details to come!
