MEET THE TEAM

GARETH PUTTER:

 

I was living in Fourways, Johannesburg, working as a tattoo artist in 2011 when I first caught wind of the Rhino poaching issue that was on the rise in our country. Having been a field guide for a few years after finishing school I have always been passionate about wildlife and the natural world in general.

Seeing what was happening to our Rhino made me extremely sad as well as angry and ignited a passion in me to make a stand for these incredible animals. After giving up on an idea to cycle from Kenya to Cape Town to raise awareness for Rhino conservation, I decided instead to hold a music Festival and call it Rocking For Rhinos.

In 2012, alongside a few other passionate people and friends, we created the NPO known as Rocking For Rhinos in Hoedspruit, South Africa.

After hosting many festivaks and events since 2012, it is my dream and my life's goal to continue working for Rocking For Rhinos and wilflife conservation in general. I truly believe that as adults and fairly intelligent individuals it is our biggest responsibility and indeed our duty to start standing up for  wildlife atrocities around the world.

We need to set an example for our children of what is right and wrong in this world and I believe it starts with showing them how special and important nature is to us and the planet as a whole.
