1. RACE AGAINST TIME.
Race against Time is a Trans-Africa record challenge with the purpose of raising awareness of the rhino’s plight and to conserve and protect them.
Over 1,215 adult rhinos were poached in South Africa last year many of them left behind their young as orphans to fend for themselves.
Orphaned rhinos cannot make it by themselves in the wild, they need our help. The only orphanage in Limpopo is over two hours away and has reached its capacity. Shared Universe is planning to shortly create a new rhino orphanage.
A few clubs in Rotary District 9400 has taken on a fairly ambitious project and they need our assistance with this.
Hereto a quick summary of the project
They have joined forces with a newly created Foundation called “The Shared Universe Foundation” to do their part in the War against the eradication of Rhinos in Africa.
What is the mission: Saving baby rhinos who’s mothers are being killed during poaching operations. (Right now we are loosing an average of 3 rhinos every day).
How do we plan to make a difference: For a start building and running a new much needed Rhino Orphanage on a 6000 hectare game farm that we have purchased as a rhino and elephant reserve.
What do they need: They need money, but most of all they need help to widen their circle of awareness and support. They need a few influential and passionate people to support them in making this happen.
