Port Elizabeth based law firm Rushmere Noach has donated R 190 000 towards the Kariega Game Reserve’s Save the Rhino project.

The firm raised the funds as part of its 80th birthday celebrations where it contributed R 45 000, while the balance of R 145 000 was collected through pledges from the firm’s clients.

According to a press release, part of the donation will be used towards an anti-poaching communication system.

The Eastern Cape-based game reserve experienced poaching incidents in March 2012 and it has since dehorned all its rhinos in an effort to protect them.
