Since 1989, the funds raised by Rhino Charge competitors have been used for Rhino Ark projects, such as the construction and maintenance of the Aberdare Electric Fence, and supporting conservation activities within the Aberdare ecosystem, including amongst the neighbouring communities. In 2010, Rhino Ark formally committed to supporting conservation in the Mt. Kenya and Mau Eburu ecosystems. Funds raised will be used for this purpose, in addition to ongoing conservation support for the Aberdare Mountain Range and the maintenance of the existing electric fence.
The money raised through the Vehicle Pass, known as the Landowner Access Fee (LAF) goes directly to the host community of the Rhino Charge. The money is then used for community projects, such as the construction of school classrooms or the installation of a borehole. This is a very important contribution and an exceptional way of saying thank you to the host community for letting us run the Rhino Charge on their land.
Finally, the money raised through the entry ticket fee is used towards the running costs of the event.
