We believe that the loss of the Rhino is a global issue and we all need to join hands to resolve it. The foundation has thus launched an international fundraising initiative to contribute to the development of the Rainbow Rhino initiative.More about our Rainbow Rhino Initiative MAKE A DONATION
The GCF is committed to the protection and survival of endangered wildlife
Our focus is on the relocation and long term sustainability of Desert Black Rhino, White Rhino, Cheetah, Bontebok, and Cape Mountain Zebra through the provision of habitat and prey species, detailed monitoring, research and anti-poaching training and implementation.
The poaching of Rhino in Southern Africa, and in South Africa in particular, has been increasing exponentially over the past five years. In 2013 more rhino were killed in the world than born.
The conservation status of cheetah in Africa is listed as threatened. However, in some areas in South Africa and neighbouring countries, cheetah are still getting regularly removed by farmers with little knowledge of the genetic development of the species in the area.
Excessive hunting and habitat loss in Southern Africa due to agriculture left Cape Mountain Zebra in a critical status by the 1950’s. Today they are once again distributed throughout much of their original range, but the population is fragmented into small sub-populations which have become isolated.
One of the rarest Antelope species in South Africa, they only naturally occur in a little stretch along the southern coast of South Africa, namley the Cape Floristic Region. Bontebok were hunted so extensively in the early 1800s by colonists that only 22 individuals remained.
