Hemmersbach Rhino Force

We are a direct action conservation organization protecting one of the most endangered species on earth. Our teams use innovative tactics and technologies to preserve rhino genes, to prevent killing of rhinos and to expose and confront all other illegal activities in the bush of Southern Africa.

Our service is free of charge.

We are a direct action initiative of the IT-services provider Hemmersbach.

We are an anti-poaching organisation dedicated to saving the African rhinoceros from extinction. Our armed anti-poaching rangers are tactically equipped giving them an advantage over the poaching syndicates they face on a daily basis. However, due to the severity of the rhino situation we have had to become more than just an anti-poaching organisation.

Now, we also capture and store rhino genes in order to preserve genetic diversity and to one day artificially breed rhinos.

We also work closely with local communities through a strategy called anti-poaching through anti-poverty. Providing and supporting local people to become educated, employed and to provide themselves with a means to survive so they need not resort to poaching.


Why anti-poaching?

Rhinos have inhabited the African continent for more than a million years and they play a huge role in their ecosystem. The illegal trade with powder made of their horns, which in some countries in Asia still is considered as medicine or just a symbol of wealth, almost caused the extinction of the African rhinos.

In 1875, still more than 1.000.000 rhinos lived in the vast grasslands of Africa. Today the population of the two species black rhino and white rhino is estimated to contain around 5.000 and 20.000 animals, respectively. The senseless killing continues. Since 2007, the number of rhinos poached in Africa has increased by almost 9.000%.

Therefore it is our calling to stop the slaughtering of the rhinos with all our power.
