World of Animals is proud to announce a new partnership with the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, from issue 7, on sale today, 10% of the worldwide profits from the magazine will go towards the fight against rhino poachers in eastern Africa.
Rhino poachers use automatic weapons to cruelly slaughter these majestic and endangered creatures. Multiple bullets are fired into the animals’ bodies and the precious horns are then hacked away, tearing deep into the rhinos’ flesh, their corpses left to rot in the unforgiving Sun.
The Ol Pejeta Conservancy, based in Laikipia, Kenya, is an organisation that has a proven reputation for fighting poachers and protecting its wildlife. Funds raised by World of Animals will help get more rangers, trackers and surveillance get deployed on the ground to save these beautiful animals from cruel deaths motivated by greed and ignorance.
Richard Vigne, CEO of the Ol Pejeta Conservency said “We on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya are thrilled and proud to be working with Imagine Publishing in the “Save Rhinos Now” campaign.
“As the largest black rhino sanctuary in eastern Africa we are at the forefront of the battle to save Africa’s rhinos from extinction. To be successful we are compelled to spend huge sums of money to pay for armed anti-poaching units, and to secure the habitat that is required for healthy growing rhino populations.”
“Consequently we welcome the possibility that this campaign may assist us to raise the funds that are required to make our rhinos safe, now and for future generations.”
The Save Rhinos Now campaign kicks off with a hard-hitting feature highlighting the plight of the rhino in issue 7. Learn about the incredible rhino, why it’s in danger and what you can do to help save it. A dedicated section for the Save Rhinos Now campaign has also been launched, where you’ll be able to follow all the latest news, keep up with Ol Pejeta and donate.
