Laurieton-based activist Corinne Broadby has a passion for animals and joined the Rhino Revolution, an international team of people working to protect the rhinoceros from poachers.
The Rhino Revolution is a not-for-profit organisation which rescues, rehabilitates and releases orphan rhinos. More than 1,000 rhino are killed each year for their horns.
Rhino Revolution also seeks to educate children about conservation and provide protection for free-roaming rhino on private reserves.
In August Corinne will travel to South Africa to see the Rhino Revolution’s rehabilitation facility located in the heart of the Greater Kruger Area.
To raise awareness on the plight of the rhino, Corinne is encouraging local children to participate in a colouring competition for a gold coin donation.
For older children and adults there is a raffle.
All proceeds will go to Rhino Revolution.
Prizes include Rhino Revolution t-shirts, hand-made African crafts, a rhino soft toy and the beautifully illustrated children’s book Ubuntu, Summer of the Rhino, the story of the first baby orphan rescued by the Rhino Revolution.
Port News is supporting the cause and colouring in sheets/raffle tickets can be picked up from our office in 52 Lord Street, Port Macquarie.
Closing date for entries to the colouring competition is July 10.
