Our Helping Rhinos Partnership + Adoptions
ThreatQuotient became an official partner of Helping Rhinos in 2019. To date, we have adopted four rhinos. The first, Mthetho, was adopted in honor of World Rhino Day 2019. ThreatQuotient then adopted three orphaned rhinos to represent each region the company serves customers: Makhosi for AMER, Mpilo for EMEA and Bhanoyi for APAC. For World Rhino Day 2020, ThreatQuotient is sponsoring a member of South Africa’s first all-female anti-poaching unit, Black Mambas, named Nocry. The Black Mamba patrols 50,000 hectares of the Balule Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park, raising awareness of the rhino poaching crisis in surrounding villages.
ThreatQuotient’s support of Helping Rhinos directly enables conservation education programs in the areas surrounding Kariega Game Reserve that reduces the likelihood of community members turning to poaching, keeps the Kariega anti-poaching unit up and running and enables them to keep rhinos safe within their area of operation. Each rhino adoption provides milk, food and essential medication for the rhinos, as well as security and overall maintenance of the rhino facilities and the orphanage.
