Rhino Charge 2019 in Why I Love Kenya Magazine

#RhinoCharge 2019 and we absolutely love this article that Why I Love Kenya magazine has done on this incredible event and the money it raises for the Rhino Ark Kenya Charitable Trust.

Here is a snippet from the article:

“The Rhino Charge is a conservation crusade in pursuit of a global eco-grail during which the competitors are doing much more than using their skill and judgement to navigate their way around 13 checkpoints in ten hours: they’re also raising money to save some of the planet’s most precious commodities: forests and water.

Life depends on water: water depends on forests. But forests now only cover around 7% of Kenya’s total land area, which is 3% less than that recommended by the United Nations. Forests are not only the lungs of the planet, but also the guardians of our future. In Kenya, the forests are estimated to harbour around half of the indigenous tree and shrub species, 40% of large mammals, 70% of threatened mammals, 30% of birds and 35% of butterflies. They also produce timber, fruit, medicine, fodder, domestic fuel and a livelihood for many thousands of forest-dependent people while laying down fossil fuels for the future, promoting rainfall, preventing drought, enriching the soil and preventing erosion.

The Rhino Charge event aims to raise funds to support the activities of the Rhino Ark Kenya Charitable Trust, a non-government organization committed to the conservation of the rhino population of the Aberdare National Park against the wider backdrop of conserving Kenya’s mountain range ecosystems, protecting her water catchment areas, reducing human versus wildlife conflict and promoting community harmony and prosperity.

Since its inception in 1989, the event has raised US dollars 15 million and built the world’s longest stretch of conservation fence.”
