Commitment to Action

African Rhino Protection Programme

Commitment by

United Postcode Lotteries

In 2014, the United Postcode Lotteries and their partners, Peace Parks Foundation and World Wide Fund for Nature Netherlands, committed to tackling and fighting rhino poaching crime syndicates through a multi-pronged approach. This approach will help conserve Southern Africa's rhino population, supporting countries and their conservation agencies, and ultimately securing vital and valuable rural livelihoods through their Rhino Protection Programme. This commitment also expands their successful rhino horn devaluation program in various parts of Africa. Under this commitment, World Wide Fund for Nature Netherlands will establish a Wildlife Justice Commission (WJC) in The Hague to reduce poaching and trafficking of threatened species by activating justice for wildlife crime in key countries and holding governments accountable for lack of action.
