Ruby Rhino was created July 2016 as part of a school project during my sophomore year in high school at the Atlanta International School in Atlanta, GA. The criteria for this project was to have an impact on the community. Being that I am of South African heritage I decided to focus on the diminishing rhino population in Africa. I have always had a passion for animals and as I began to investigate the pressing issues that the Rhinos face in Africa, I realized that this project was much more important than just a grade.
The poaching of rhinos and other endangered species is part of a much larger syndicate that operates at the expense of the innocent and helpless in our world. My goal is to raise awareness to the conservation of the Rhinos as well as donating funds to the Save The Rhino Foundation.
