Raising money to Save The Rhino

In 2016, Woburn Safari Park raised a fantastic £4,830 for Save The Rhino International, which works to conserve the future for wild and captive rhino. 

The Reserves team held their fundraising weekend from 30th April to 2nd May 2016, featuring mini-VIP trips to see the rhino herd off road and up close, tombola and raffle.

The money raised will go to the Mkhuze Game Reserve in northern Africa, which is home to black and white rhino. 

Woburn Safari Park is currently home to five Southern white rhino; males Otto and Kai, and females Mtubatuba, Makosi and Mirijam. They all live out in the African Reserve section of the safari park. 

Chris Smart, Head of Section for Reserves, said: "It's great that visitors helped us raise such a fantastic amount of money for Save The Rhino. It is a charity that is very important to the keepers and we're very appreciative that so much was done to help ensure the future conservation of these majestic animals."
