100% proceeds from all items go to pennies for eles, a not for profit that provides funding for Transfrontier Africa projects that are involved with the protection, conservation and research of rhinos and also raising awareness of the dire situation that they are in. Stefan Bosman of the Transfrontier Africa team came up with this slogan and Mr G very kindly donated his time and creativity to come up with the great design – Thank you!!!!
In 2012 the Black Rhino is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List and The Southern White Rhino as Near Threatened, however, since then rhinos in Africa are being poached horrendously with on average 3 killed every day!!!
Over 1100 rhino have been poached in 2014 alone and estimates are that there are approximately 21000 left in Southern Africa. They need all the help that they can get and the team desperately need all the help they can get to help fund their vital anti poaching activities!!! .
Since 2010 Pennies for Eles have supported the projects of Transfrontier Africa and since 2014, the all female Back Mamba Anti Poaching Unit in South Africa. In 2014 Pennies for Eles supplied the uniforms and kit for the Black Mambas which was helped by sales of items here on Redbubble!
The Black Mambas were featured in the Unreported World documentary - The Black Mambas: Saving the Rhino https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MqWRFlbpAc
