Rhinorails joins in the fight against rhino poaching
At Rhinorails we believe in sustainability and giving back to the community which is why one of our core values is our respect for the environment. With this in mind we have ensured that all of our products are long-lasting, designed for optimal energy efficiency and are 100% recyclable.
As a company we have decided to take this a step further and from September 2015 we will be contributing £3 from every heated towel rail sold to Save the Rhino International (UK registered charity 1035075) and we hope that we will inspire other local and international businesses to support this and other worthwhile causes.
Save the Rhino International supports all five rhino species and has a vision that all rhinos will be able to thrive in the wild for future generations. Save the Rhino International collaborates with partners across Asia and Africa, through on going fund-raising activities, providing grants and various conservation programmes, to support endangered rhinos.
In 2015 rhino poaching reached unprecedented levels in South Africa, which has the highest rhino population in the world, and has caused experts to warn that rhinos could go extinct in the very near future unless something dramatic is done to protect them.
Recent developments have started to raise more awareness about the plight of the rhino along with celebrities such as Stephen Fry, Professor Brian Cox, Michael Palin, Richard Dawkins and many more supporting causes such as Save the Rhino International.
According to Daily Mail reports Prince Harry has recently joined the fight against rhino poaching, assisting a military unit in the Kruger National Park, and going on night patrols with an army unit as part of the South African government’s anti-poaching campaign. Prince Charles and The Duke of Cambridge have also teamed up to combat and raise awareness about the illegal wildlife trade.
Save the Rhino International states that “Rhinos are facing an escalating poaching crisis at the moment and unless something dramatic is done to protect them they will go extinct in the wild”. If you are interested in helping, whether is it is through volunteer work, making a donation, or getting your company or work colleagues involved in a fund raising event, more information is available on their website.
Rhinorails is an importer and distributor of stainless steel heated towel rails, grab rails and bathroom accessory sets to the UK and Europe.
