Continuing the work of the man who saved the rhino

Dr Player founded the Player Ntombela Foundation as part of his conservation efforts that were instrumental in bringing the white rhino back from the brink of extinction. Royal Rhino supports his efforts by raising money for the fund as well as increasing awareness through the local and international marketing and distribution of Van Loveren and Royal Rhino's products.

Since 2008, however, there has been a resurgence in rhino poaching. Each year more and more rhino are killed for their horns, despite increased conservation efforts. In 2014 alone 1215 rhino were poached in South Africa.

Funding is desperately needed to protect rhino, to raise awareness and for education programmes that can reduce the demand for rhino horn.
