Conservation Projects

Rhino Project Video

The Upmost Rhino Project is focused on protecting rhinos in Africa from the increasing threat of poachers in high risk poaching areas as well as funding rescue and rehabilitation efforts for rhinos injured in attacks. There are two ways you can help. 1) Join an Upmost Rhino Project expedition where you will be able to get hands-on with rhinos in the wild during a poaching prevention operation. The cost of your ticket to join the expedition will help fund the costs mentioned below. 2) Donate directly to this project. Your donation and/or your participation in a rhino project expedition will help fund the following:

  1. Veterinarian fees
  2. Helicopter and pilot fees to track the rhinos at the highest risk of being poached.
  3. Costs associated with ear notching and tagging the rhinos for identification and tracking purposes.
  4. Ground support teams.
  5. Lodging costs for team members.
  6. Medical supplies, milk, vitamins etc. for baby orphaned rhinos injured by poachers.
  7. 24-hour security patrols around the reserve parameters to safeguard the rhinos from poachers.
  8. Costs to subsidize local and international volunteers.
  9. Marketing /advertising costs to bring awareness to this project.

The Upmost Ocean project is a collaboration involving multiple local NPO's around the Balearic Islands to help remove plastic and garbage from the oceans and beaches which have seen growing accumulation of plastic waste in recent years. To steer this project we have decided to hire boat captains and other local workers impacted by Covid-19 to help clean the oceans and beaches of the Balearic Islands so we can help protect the marine wildlife in this region and preserve the beauty of these stunning islands for future generations to enjoy. Donations received fund the following:

  1. Boat captains and workers to help clean the areas most affected
  2. Boat maintenance and fuel.
  3. Garbage removal equipment (i.e. ocean surface scrapers, scuba gear etc.).
