We were humbled to welcome the iconic carer of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino at the DSP. James Mwenda from the Ol Pejeta conservancy in Kenya was the guest of honour at the Dancing for Rhinos dinner and dance benefit show, where several DSP learners performed to support Dancing for Rhinos and the Kariega Foundation in their plight against rhino poaching.
During an inspiring morning assembly James told learners that they are the future of rhinos and the environment at large because they are the future decision-makers, presidents, ministers, conservationists and ordinary citizens with the power to care and make a difference.
Saskia Adrian, received a special certificate from James for her commitment in raising R5000 towards rhino conservation through her sales at the DSP entrepreneurs’ days over the past years.
James also spent time with our partner school learners explaining that every single rhino life counts towards saving the species.
