Project Rhino is a collaborative platform of 37 public, private, and civil society actors in the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) region of South Africa. It received RRF funds through African Conservation Trust, with the collective purpose of reducing wildlife crime. This project is collectively responsible for the second largest rhino population in the KZN region: a place where rhinos were saved from extinction. With RRF funding, Project Rhino will be able to better coordinate Project Rhino members, build their capacity, support anti-poaching efforts across collaborative rhino landscapes, facilitate education with local communities, and provide households facing extreme food insecurity with material support.
