There are less than 30,000 Rhinos living in the wild today. Humans are the reason for their dramatic decline to extinction. Help us adopt orphan rhinos today.
The Rhino Preservation Bracelet represents your commitment to saving the rhino species. Every bracelet donates $5 to Helping Rhinos, an organization that adopts orphaned rhinos and provides them with food, shelter, security and medical needs.
Together, we help support their commitment to successfully sustain viable rhino populations in their natural habitat through adoption, research, and political advocacy. For every rhino we adopt, Cause Bracelet gets a certificate, factsheet, and photo of the rhino you helped save, plus regular updates on their progress. All of this info we will always share on Instagram @causebracelet and via email!
Cause Bracelets are not just cute colored bracelets. We believe in clearly displaying to the world what you stand for in order to create a space for positive, nonaggressive conversation helping other people ask themselves, “well what can I, my friends and family do to help solve this issue?” We've seen it time and time again, someone will ask, “where’d you get that bracelet? What is it for?” BOOM you have a creative opening to raise awareness.
This is why we have created a brand that clearly and proudly represents important causes all over the world!
Did you know that poaching and the illegal trafficking of rhino horns have drastically increased since 2007 and remain to be one of the major reasons rhinos are still endangered today?
Poaching is a highly profitable business, and well-organized criminal organizations are now well-equipped to track and kill rhinos. Sadly one rhino horn easily earns poachers $245,000+ so there is a significant incentive for them to continue to do so. Often the political and economic instability within countries can increase the threat of poaching as well. Dehorning often used to protect rhinos from poaching, however, there are numerous cases in which poachers continue to target dehorned rhinos due to the stub of horn that is left after removal. If a rhino horn is cut too close to the germinal layer, the horn base could be damaged and lead to deformed horn re-growth.
Current dehorning removes an estimate of 90 - 93% of horn mass in male and female white rhinos respectively. So during any dehorning exercise, a stub of the horn will remain: although poaching is made less profitable, the horrid reality is that poachers will still kill for a horn stub due to its high value.
Habitat loss is the other major threat to rhino populations. As more and more land is cleared for agriculture there is less available space for rhinos to thrive in. Rhinos need a large area in which to feed and roam. If rhino populations end up fragmented, with no safe ‘corridors’ to travel through, chances of successful breeding and recovery will decline further.
Together we CAN make a difference. That is why we’ve released the Save Rhinos Bracelet in support of Helping Rhinos, to highlight the urgent need to preserve what is left of the vulnerable rhino species. Every bracelet purchased donates $5 which helps secure the adoption of orphaned rhinos in South Africa. These incredible people rescue and rehabilitate rhino orphans from as young as two weeks old. When you purchase a bracelet you will be providing milk, food, and essential medications for the orphans.
You will also help provide top security at the orphanage to prevent attacks from poachers, as well as maintenance and improvement of the rhino facilities.
