This beautiful, handmade Black Rhino ornament comes from Northern Kenya in partnership with the Northen Rangelands Trust. In Kenya, there are two species of rhinos, black and white rhinos. Rhinos are mainly threatened due to poaching for their horns for both medicine and as an investment. In 2016 alone, over 1,000 rhinos were killed in South Africa, the stronghold for the African rhino population.
This ornament was made using beads and bead working techniques that have been in use for over 200 years. By purchasing this ornament, not only are you making memories that last a life time, you're also contributing to economic development and promoting greater co-existence with people and wildlife. In addition, we take 15% of the profits on this product and donate it directly to organizations and conservancies working to conserve rhinos near where this product comes from.
By purchasing this rhino, you are strengthening opportunities for people living with wildlife around protected areas. The sale of this product and others like it allow women of the Samburu tribe to earn income and live their traditional lifestyles. Together, we're creating economic opportunity and protecting wildlife. Thank you for purchasing with Pangols!
