Sponsorship with the Rhino Charge in Kenya

28 May 2015

This year Nutreco Africa will be sponsoring "Car 5” entered by a team from Kenchic and Nutreco customer Unga Feeds East Africa Ltd in the annual Rhino Charge in Kenya.

This event is an off-road motorsport competition in which entrants try to visit 13 points over approximately 100 km² of rough terrain within 10 hours. The winner is the competitor who visits the most guard posts in the shortest distance.

The event raises funds to support the activities of the Rhino Ark Charitable Trust, which works towards the conservation and protection of Kenya’s mountain range ecosystems, the so-called “Water Towers”.

The event started in 1989 to raise funds for the construction of the Aberdare Electric Fence, a project carried out by the Rhino Ark Charity. The Trust is committed to saving the dwindling Rhino population in the Aberdare National Park and to mitigating human-wildlife conflicts around the National Park.
