Charity: Rhino Ark
|Area of Operation:||East Africa|
|Pledge level:||£1500 including £50 registration fee|
Rhino Ark (UK) is the UK arm of Rhino Ark which is a Kenyan environmental charitable trust. We help to develop sustainable solutions to the challenges facing mountain forest eco-systems and threatened biodiversity areas in East Africa. Everyone who works for Rhino Ark (UK) is a volunteer. We have no overheads so, other than specific Marathon costs, all the money we raise goes to Rhino Ark Kenya so that your donations go straight to building electric fences. Rhino Ark has finished building an electric fence around Aberdare National Park and is now focussed on building a 450 km fence around Mount Kenya (designated as a World Heritage website by UNESCO in 1997) and the Mau Eburu forest.
