NEWS UPDATE - We are currently in talks with The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant orphanage regarding supporting their work
Conservation & Support
Help us support the Friends of Rietvlei - We donate 10% of the profits from every sale of paintings or prints by Larry Norton to this charity.
The Friends of Rietvlei are a volunteer led organisation who are actively involved in the fight against Rhino poaching, and nature conservation of the fauna and flora in the Rietvlei Nature Reserve in Pretoria.
They assist the management of the Reserve with the continuous planning and execution of various projects to add value and to maintain the Reserve.
Unfortunately they have been the target of more than one attack of their own rhinos by a highly organised syndicate using helicopters and ground crew, who managed to kill and dehorn some of the rhinos.
Please have a look at their web-site below:
