Seedballs At Helicopter Horizons, we are aware of the impact our operations have on the environment.

Rhino Conservation Botswana

Rhino Conservation Botswana (RCB) helps to increase and protect populations of black and white rhinos in Botswana. They have been appointed by the Botswana government to monitor and protect the rhinos against poaching. Their aim is to build a thriving population of rhinos in Botswana so that, long-term, it can repopulate other areas of Africa from which rhinos have been lost.

RCB aims to:
– Protect a growing population of black and white rhinos in Botswana.
– Protect and restore the rich biodiversity of the Okavango Delta.
– Build perception of rhinos of one of Botswana’s “national treasures” and engage local communities in their conservation.
– Disseminate knowledge and best practice in rhino management and monitoring across Africa.

Africa’s rhino population is at a tipping point. More are being killed than are being born and, if things go on as they are, they could go extinct by 2024. Botswana is proud to be home to an increasing population of rhinos. As numbers rise, and more rhinos are moved to the safety of Botswana from other southern African countries, RCB must increase its capacity to keep them all safe.
