SPACE FOR GIANTS USA INC's Fundraiser:

Race for Rhinos- Tlhokomela Trust

SPACE FOR GIANTS USA INC's Photo

THE STORY:

Some 100 light aircraft expected to participate in the four-day 2017 Race for Rhinos in Botswana beginning June 29.  A group of American pilots based in Anchorage, Alaska are leading this fundraising effort to raise money for Botswana's Thlokomela Trust which works to protect Botswana's parks and wildlife.  Thlokomela and Space for Giants work together to strengthen anti-poaching efforts to protect elephants. During the Race for Rhinos, aircraft will take of and land on the hardened salt plains next to Lekhubu Island. Lekhubu Island is a national monument for Botswana. There is a pre-historical wall on the southern side of the Lekhubu rocky outcrop which postdates the post Great Zimbabwe ruins and the ruins themselves are said to have been an initiation centre for males in the past.  As part of Botswana’s dedication to conservation this event is called the Race For Rhinos, with key turning points aligning themselves with destinations that are home to some of Botswana’s rhino population, including Serowe and the Khama Rhino Sanctuary and Debswana’s Orapa Game Park. The national endangered wildlife trust, Tlhokomela, supports this event as it will bring awareness of the good work that the Botswana government is doing to promote the country as a safe haven for these critically endangered species.
