Programme Donors

The list of people to thank is long: ranging from wonderful, extra-ordinary individuals, schools, churches and companies who contribute regularly – to major corporates such as GoRhino & Mr Price Sport, who raise funds for our work through mutually beneficial brand-sharing agreements. And then there are the non-profit Trusts such as imake a Difference (New Zealand), the Jonny Lowe Memorial Trust and Wildlands: without them, key anti-poaching initiatives such as ZAP-Wing would not exist.

A big Thank You too – to all those living overseas who donate via GivenGain .

And we also have to thank the private game reserves and companies such as Barrows who donate their time, skills, services, space and equipment to Project Rhino KZN, free of charge.

Thank you to all the individuals and private donors who have contributed so generously to the operations of the aircraft and ZAP-Wing as a whole.
