Prima Toys and Wildlife ACT have once again come together in support of one of South Africa’s most iconic and endangered wild creatures – the Rhino. The two conservation-minded organisations, have worked together in the past to raise funds to help feed and care for baby rhinos, who have been orphaned as a result of prolific poaching.
To continue with the cause, Prima Toys has once again launched Rhino Coin Banks into South African toy retailers. These are adorable, soft toy rhino ‘piggy banks’, with plastic interior and a removable stopper to hold cash and coins inside its belly. These will be available for purchase in all leading toy specialist and supermarket stores for R199.99.
For every purchase, Prima Toys will donate R10 to Wildlife ACT, who facilitates the funding of various organisations that care for and feed baby orphaned rhinos, until they are old enough to be released back into the wild.
“The Rhinoceros is an endangered species and through the Rhino Coin Bank campaign, we hope to raise awareness amongst younger generations,” says Chiquita Patrizi of Prima Toys.
