YOUR INVESTMENT MATTERS

EVERY DAY IN AFRICA, THREE RHINOS ARE KILLED FOR THEIR HORNS. BETWEEN 1960 AND 1995, BLACK RHINO NUMBERS ACROSS AFRICA DROPPED BY A SHOCKING 98%.

Poaching is driven by the illegal rhino horn trade. Ancient beliefs suggest that rhino horn can cure diseases and bestow status. Of course, it does neither. It is simply keratin, the same substance found in hair and nails.

But ancient beliefs are hard to change: sadly, they are driving rhinos, animals that have walked the Earth for more than 50 million years, to the verge of extinction.

Today, the northwest of Namibia is home to the last and largest population of free-roaming black rhinos left on Earth. Their home is an area of 9,600 square miles (25,000 square kilometres) with no national park status, few roads and no control over who comes in or out.

The monitoring and safety of this population of black rhinos is attributed to the commitment of the organizations and communities that dedicate their lives to protecting the rhinos.

A rhino-based economy has been established in Namibia’s northwest. Rhino tracking, which has been central to tourism development in the region, provides local jobs, a source of income and hope for the future.

SUSTAINABLE FUNDING PROVIDED BY YOUR INVESTMENT IN THE RHINO GOLD BARS IS NOT ONLY CRITICAL TO CONSERVATION, BUT IT IS ALSO CRUCIAL TO THE WELFARE AND FUTURE OF RURAL COMMUNITIES IN NAMIBIA’S NORTHWEST.

Your Investment in Action

By investing in a Namibian Rhino Gold Bar, you are securing an investment that has proven over time to be more stable and secure than any other investment, while at the same time contributing to community development and the conservation of a critically endangered species.

Proceeds from the sale of every gold bar is managed and distributed by the Rhino Gold Bar Advisory Committee, which includes representatives from B2Gold, Save the Rhino Trust Namibia, Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation, the Namibia Chamber of Environment, and the Namibia Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism.

The funds will be used in two ways: a portion of the proceeds will be invested to provide long-term, sustainable financing for black rhino conservation, while significant funding will be applied immediately to conservation actions in the field, including supporting patrols and intelligence activities, and supporting rural communities for whom the protection of rhinos is their birthright.
