Cal Tait, Matt Perrott and Chris Hyslop are three remarkable 17 year olds from Diocesan College (Bishops), in Cape Town who are putting their passion for nature conservation into action – cycling 600km (from Cape Town to Knysna) in 6 days to raise funds for the Rhinos Without Borders translocation project.
This vital project comes at a time when rhino poaching in South Africa is at an all time high, with the species teetering on the brink of extinction. Rhinos Without Borders moves these endangered animals away from the poaching hotspots to safer environments where they can thrive. Through their Riding for Rhinos campaign Matt, Cal and Chris aim to raise R200,000 which will cover the costs of security and monitoring of one of these rhinos.
This year we decided that we could no longer just sit and support vocally but rather get out and make a valuable contribution to saving the rhino…Through this project we would love to help inspire the youth of our country to support nature conservation and help them to believe that they can make a difference.
