About Program

South Africa is home to three-quarters of the world's rhino population -- affectionately known as "ecosystem engineers" (as they play a crucial role in the ecosystem). Rampant poaching has severely affected the rhino population and there's a chance they will be extinct in 20 years. Researchers and scientists are diligently studying the rhino species role in the environment to better help protect them from illegal poaching. This program will allow you to shadow a game viewer and assist them in their daily research activities.

Walking with Rhinos

One of my most memorable experiences on this trip was that, with the supervision of the reserve manager, we were able to approach the rhino on foot while doing our observations, getting close enough to hear them breathing. Knowing that we're directly helping to save these wonderful animals is one thing, but being that close to them really brings home how important it is that we do so.

This sentence added because the others did not get to 400 characters.
