The Westville Rhino Warriors is a group of concerned boys and teachers, aiming to raise awareness about the plight of the rhinos in South Africa. This group of boys have participated in various outings including an open day at the Beachwood-Mangrove Wildlife centre where they displayed posters and distributed flyers with information about the horrors of rhino poaching. In addition, this group also spent three days of their holiday completing a wilderness trail through the Umfolozi Game Reserve, hiking close to 35 kilometres and camping in the wild. With a focus on conservation, the group were taught to identify some of the local bird life and animal spore. The group returned to school with a renewed passion to stop the slaughter and save the rhino!
The Westville Rhino Warriors aims to continue its information campaign, by inviting relevant speakers to address the school and by distributing information at home sporting fixtures.
