Letter to DHL employees re rhino (Eliska) translocation One of the things of which I am most proud is the support DHL has given to supporting animal conservation. [more]

Rhino translocation The upcoming rhino translocation of Eliska (booked for next week) is now fully arranged and DHL are doing an amazing job of organising their side of everything, including donating the flight, which is the most massive contribution. Dvur Kralove Zoo in Czech Republic and the Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) are in constant communication, and the move is being filmed by Maverick. DHL are organising the social media and the hasktag #DHLRhino will be in evidence on Twitter. [link]

Friends receive regular reports and newsletters

Note about volunteering

Many people are kind enough to offer their services, in a voluntary capacity, for either the Tanzanian or Kenyan projects. Our agreement with the Tanzanian and Kenya governments means that we can only employ nationals of those countries so, sadly, it is not possible to accommodate volunteers

For those who wish to help in their home countries, volunteering also presents difficulties. The way we are structured does not really call for volunteers.  Our fundraising is carried out within a tight network of trusts and individuals rather than a wide range of activities. We are happy to keep your details on file in case circumstances change
