ACTING FOR RHINOS Empowers Theatre-Makers to Assist Rhino Conservation

The "Acting for Rhinos" logo

Acting for Rhinos is an exciting new project initiated by Eden College Durban and members of the Durban Theatre community. It is aimed at empowering South African and international school children as well as theatre practitioners to assist Project Rhino KZN.

Professional and school based productions are an existing component of our rich South African culture. Acting for Rhinos provides the link between the arts and conservation. The basic concept is to challenge schools and theatre companies to donate R1.00 of each ticket sold of any performance staged to Project Rhino KZN. Creative projects can now make a significant contribution to our wildlife heritage.

Acting for Rhinos participants will also be able to display the Acting for Rhinos logo on their posters and promotional material. Participants website addresses will be displayed on the Acting for Rhino page of the Project Rhino KZN website. Regular updates will be given on the webpage of who the contributors are and how the money is being spent.

Project Rhino KZN (PRKZN) was established in 2011 by the KwaZulu-Natal conservation community to bring together government, private and civil society and create a province-wide, united front against rhino poaching and other wildlife crime threats. It supports and extends the work of KZN's 16 leading conservation organisations and two associate members, with a focus on both reactive and proactive needs and has entrenched an ethos of collaboration and trust between state, private and civil society -- something that has not been achieved by any other province in South Africa.

If your school or organisation is interested in participating in this worthwhile campaign, contact Micah van Schalkwyk for further information.
