When you sponsor feeding a rhino for a week for $35 — or any amount you can afford — here’s how your money helps:
- Our 300 rhinos are huge, hungry and Rockwood is running out of grass for grazing due to drought conditions.
- One rhino weighs 2 tons and munches about 840 pounds of grass in 7 days! That means we need to truck in tons of grass every week.
- The white rhino is square-lipped, so even if they wanted to copy the black rhino and feed on shrubs, they wouldn’t be able to wrap those lips around anything other than grass.
- There are only 18,000 white rhinos left. They’ve got to eat to survive!
Our ultimate goal at Rockwood is to not have to save the rhino at all. But until then, we’re dedicated to doing whatever it takes to ensure the continued survival of the species and safeguarding rhino habitat.
