PA Rhino Conservation Advocates (PARCA), Inc. has a vision of a world where the rhinoceros lives free from the threat of extinction in natural habitats that are preserved forever. Our mission is to fund the relocation and protection of wild rhinos, fund the care of young rhinos orphaned by poaching, and raise public awareness about their plight. Rhinos are endangered because of the FALSE belief that their horn has medicinal properties and because the horn is considered a status symbol (worn as jewelry, displayed, or given as a gift). Rhinos and other wildlife are at more risk now because of COVID-19. The tourism industry is responsible for about 1 out of every 20 jobs in Africa and the closing of borders and temporary end to this industry have drastically cut jobs and incomes. Conservation jobs are at risk because of reducing funding. It is feared that poaching will increase because with fewer people on tour and funding for monitoring reduced, poachers can move more freely. And with jobs negatively impacted across the globe, there are fewer with the means to support missions like ours. Last year, several board members visited the rhino sanctuary where we support the care of an orphan, Ribbon, and we visited other areas where monitors oversee the safety of these iconic animals. We learned firsthand about the work that employees and volunteers do to care for the babies orphaned by poaching. We had the honor to walk with rangers on some exercises, learning firsthand about the danger they face to protect these animals and the long periods of time they spend away from their families. This campaign focuses on raising money for the continued support of our orphan and the rangers keeping rhinos safe in several different areas. Now more than ever they need our support for their livelihoods and the safety and wellbeing of the rhinos they work so hard to care for and keep safe.
