2013 was the worst year recorded for rhino poaching with a total of 1004 rhinos poached in South Africa alone – a massive increase on 2012’s total of 448. Therefore in March 2014 Tsitsikamma Crystal decided to help save rhinos by donating per bottle sold to the WESSA RHINO INITIATIVE for the GAME RESERVES UNITED (GRU) AGAINST RHINO POACHING initiative.
More about Game Reserves United:
The game reserves to the west of the Kruger National Park (KNP) are strategically important as a western buffer zone and they themselves protect a high proportion of the country’s rhino. Since 2012 the key ‘’western’’ reserves have been working collaboratively to establish a coordinated effort to proactively combat rhino poaching. This effort has been termed ‘’Game Reserves United’’. – See more
