On behalf of Karmagawa we appreciate your interest in saving the last of our planet’s rhinos.
Based on current birth rates and statistics rhinos will go extinct within the next 5 -10 years.
Our goal here is to do whatever it takes to prevent this global loss as we believe it is reversible in the crucially short amount of time we have left to act.
We realize we are not rhino experts. We are storytellers with platforms and voices connected to more than 10 million people across the world. This is an unprecedented opportunity and we intend to use that power for good.
If you are here it is hopefully because we told this story well enough that you, like us, feel the undeniable need to DO something.
Here are things you can do right now:
The International Fund for Animal Welfare is one of the largest and most well respected animal welfare and conservation charities in the world. They work in more than 40 countries to rescue individual animals, safeguard populations, preserve habitat, and advocate for greater protections.Donate Now
The college works with conservation agencies across the southern African region as well as the Game Rangers Association of Africa to train natural resource managers, conservationists and field rangers who make a career out of conserving and protecting wildlife. They train students in: anti-poaching techniques, wildlife-conflict management, community-based natural resource management, geographic information systems, tracking and infrastructure development.Donate Now
Founded by Dr. Lorinda Hern, this doctor-led nonprofit developed one of the only proactive methods of devaluing of rhino horns, while letting the animal still keep its horn. They do this by infusing the horn with an animal-friendly toxin and dye, while also providing added security measures like microchips, tracking technology and DNA sampling and storage. Their mission is to offer a sustainable, cost effective defensive strategy to protect rhinos in South Africa and elsewhere from poaching.Donate Now
Utilizes the skills and experience of post-9/11 U.S. veterans to provide on the ground armed protection for endangered African wildlife, train park rangers and support their communities. Karmagawa has had the privilege of working with them on the ground in two locations in South Africa and has thus far donated more than $200,000.Donate Now
