Richard Mabanga, the rhino ambassador for Rhino Art, travels through South Africa visiting schools and spreading awareness about the plight of the rhino, and teaching every learner about the importance of conservation.
On the Manyoni Private Game Reserve, Rhino Art teams up with the Foundation to ensure all the schools in our area get to hear Richard's important message.
Through art, each child is given their own voice, they can express themselves through each of their art pieces and this helps us understand how they view wildlife and what is important to them. Each school chooses a winner, who becomes the schools rhino ambassador and will represent them at an educational kids environmental camp in Somkhanda Game Reserve over the school vacation
Frances Hannah had this to say “As I clutched the art close to my chest whilst spreading it out over the room I got a strong smell of wood fire and fish. I could imagine the time and effort the children put into this work as they sat at home after school while food was being prepared in their house over an open fire.” Read more about Rhino Art here.
