“A very soulful moment was when we walked to the special stone laying ceremony…the silence was quite frankly audible. I wondered if the rhino there in the bush would ever know what these young people were trying to do for them? ”
Carol Harnwell, Chaperone Eastern Cape
Roused at sunrise by Zulu drums and stimulated, inspired, educated and engaged far into the night, Summit delegates (Rhino Warriors) and their chaperones (Abaphathi) enjoyed a packed 3-day programme in the company of over 30 conservation leaders and Rhino Elders. Every delegate also got to see wild rhinos during the Summit.
The Summit culminated in delegates writing six Resolutions outlining changes they want to see to improve the survival of rhino and reduction of wildlife crime, as well as the unveiling of the World Youth Wildlife Declaration.
