Rhino poaching is, tragically, a growth industry. And when each rhino horn is worth more than a living rhino, this is unlikely to change unless we act to change it.

That is why the Castle Lager Boucher Legacy wants everyone to come together to place every rhino in safe hands.

Using the Rhino DNA Index System project, run by the VGL lab based in Onderstepoort, we want to DNA profile every individual rhino in South Africa. This will provide a powerful disincentive to poachers as every horn can be traced back to its source. This technology has already been used to put poachers behind bars, with the system being used in cases of rhino poaching already. We have already tagged 616 rhino and we want to extend this protection to all South African rhinos and, hopefully, beyond South Africa’s borders.

Finding, tagging and profiling a rhino costs on average R10 000 ($1000) per rhino, so we cannot hope to achieve this goal without your help. 

This World Rhino Day, the 22nd of September, come together to add your voice to the call for donations. Because together, we can place all our rhino in safe hands.

The Castle Lager Boucher Legacy is involved with the Rhino DNA Index System project run by the VGL lab based in South Africa. We want to DNA profile each and every rhino in South Africa. This makes prosecution easier and more effective as well as helps us identify where illegal rhino horn is coming from.
