Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary provides one of the only safe havens for Uganda’s remaining ten white rhinos. Rhinos have been pushed to the edge of extinction due to poaching and were completely wiped out of Uganda in the 1980’s. Now thanks to a dedicated team of rangers and conservationists, the sanctuary plays a critical role in breeding rhinos for eventual release back into the wild.
Ziwa sanctuary spans 7,000 hectares of savannah habitat that is not only home to the rhinos but also 20 other species of wildlife and hundreds of species of bird. We are supporting the daily running of this vital conservation initiative to help secure the future of these critically endangered animals.
