Project Update - October 2017

 

Dear Team Rhino,

A bumper newsletter announcing some new supporters of the Australian Rhino Project with a few unique offers as we enter the festive season.

In terms of the project, construction is now underway on the quarantine facility for the first shipment of the rhinos. The team at Monarto Zoo in South Australia continue to work around the clock to prepare the open plain facility and cover all aspects in terms of security, fencing and vegetation.

Discussions continue with all South African parties on the specific rhino requirements and progress is being made regarding permitting and other details.

We are excited to advise that for the 3rd year running, the 3 Bay Challenge team will be donating all proceeds from their event to the Australian Rhino Project. If you are interested in volunteering at the event, please contact Vincent via email. Volunteers will need to arrive at Watsons Bay by 6:30am as the registration opens at 6:45am.

 

3 Bay Challenge - 5th November

The 3 Bay Challenge is a three-stage biathlon where participants run and swim between three of Sydney's iconic harbour beaches: Nielsen Park, Parsley Bay, Watsons Bay. The event is designed to be both challenging and unique, set in an idyllic location with the background drop of the Sydney CBD.

Suitable for everyone from beginners to professionals, the course consists of three running legs and three swimming legs. Total distance is 6km run and 750m swim. Marshalls and lifeguards are on course at all times.

After successfully competing in the 3 Bay Challenge, the tradition is to all meet at the Watson’s Bay Hotel for a celebratory drink and bite to eat. Registration fee includes one drink and food item.

Come along for an energetic start to your Sunday morning.
