DERECK JOUBERT supports ZEROS FOR RHINOS initiative with GREAT PLAINS FOUNDATION

Great Plains Conservation launches a free safari campaign, as a fundraiser in support of its initiative Zeros for Rhinos.

This Great Plains Foundation initiative will relocate 100 treasured rhinos from South Africa to safe havens in Botswana. Founder of the Great Plains Foundation,Dereck Joubert, talks of the importance of returning rhino to Botswana. Dereck Joubert Q&A, and Dereck Joubert Earth Day post on Huff Post Green.

A SAFARI FOR FREE?
WELL, FOR THE RHINOS!

Great Plains Conservation has committed alongside industry partners to undertake a relocation of rhinos on a magnitude never done before — to relocate no less than 100 rhino from South Africa to safe havens in Botswana. By mid–2015, this relocation operation will take place with an assertive and elaborate anti–poaching force and strong commitment to save this species.

Our fundraising campaign, Zeros For Rhinos, will ensure this relocation initiative is a success; striving to rescue this treasured species from spiraling to extinction. What is gained is the knowledge that we all collectively stopped a species from meeting its maker. Great Plains Foundation, our non–profit partner, will raise the funds to do it, and every dollar counts.

As a fundraiser, Great Plains Conservation has contributed a limited number of safari bednights to the Great Plains Foundation. The cost of your stay in these three camps goes to the fundraising efforts of the Zeros for Rhinos initiative!

Join us at ZarafaSelinda or Selinda Explorers camps — an exclusive way of experiencing Africa while contributing to this tremendous initiative! Included in this limited offer are value–add surprises in camp.**

Can’t come on safari? We’ll miss you, but you can still contribute to the Zeros for Rhinos campaign. Any amount counts and matters — $10 from many people will very quickly add up.
