RHINO RISK “Boxes”

RAGES July 2

RHINO INTERNATIONAL SURVIVAL KITS

Together with the Rotary Club of Kenton-on-Sea South Africa and our Projects Director Jo Wilmot, we are developing RAGES International Survival Kits or RISK Boxes. These boxes or kits will be available for Rotary and Rotaract Clubs and Districts to support.

These RISK Boxes will contain equipment that will go to various projects engaged in the protection and survival of rhinos in areas of South Africa that are currently under attack by well organised poaching gangs and syndicates.

RAGES is looking at supplying these RISK Boxes in the area of most need. These RISK Boxes will start at $500 for the entry level. There are three other levels that will be available.

We are also developing a K9 RISK Box to facilitate the training of tracker dogs like Sammy below.
