Church leaders against rhino poaching
A Rocha participated in a workshop arranged by the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) in partnership with Timbavati Foundation and the Responsible Tourism Foundation with the theme Church Leaders Against Rhino Poaching. The aim was to raise awareness and impart knowledge about the plight of the rhino among church leaders from communities close to game reserves in the north east of South Africa.
More than 14 churches and denominations representing over 3000 members were at the workshop. The church in South Africa has a massive following and immense influence amongst communities impacted by Rhino poaching.
