Pick n Pay Namibia announced that they are the exclusive retailer for the ‘Save the Rhino Trust Namibia’ promotion to assist the fight against rhino poaching. Baby rhino plush toys are sold at the entrances of all Pick ‘n Pay branches throughout the country. The proceeds are given to Save the Rhino Trust Namibia to boost the protection of the local indigenous rhino population. The plush toys cost N$100 a piece.

“The initiative was born in South Africa and we are proud that we have been able to extend it to Namibia and raise funds for the ‘Save the Rhino Trust in Namibia’. While we might not have the poaching problem that our neighbours face, rhinos are nevertheless an endangered species and these magnificent animals need to be protected. Pick n Pay is proud to be the exclusive retailer at which the plush toys are sold” said Managing Director of Pick n Pay Namibia, Henry Feris.
The Save the Rhino Trust in Namibia has been successfully protecting the black rhino of the Kunene and Erongo regions for 30 years. Working closely with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, dedicated teams of trackers go out on daily foot, camel, donkey or vehicle patrols to monitor this last truly free-ranging population of black rhino in the world. Save the Rhino Trust was founded by pioneer conservationist, Blythe Loutit who committed her entire life to the protection of wildlife.
