SA Hunters and Game Conservation Association (SAHGCA) is appealing to the public, NGO and corporate sector to blow the whistle on pseudo-campaigns and scams that collect money under the pretext that these funds would be used to protect rhinos against poaching.
SAHGCA says anyone that wishes to donate money in aid of rhino anti-poaching projects, should make sure that the entity or NGO they support is a legitimate fundraiser than will ensure that the money is used for the cause they claim to support.
