Wildlife activist, Anton Fouche started a 32 day scaffold tower endurance stunt as a fundraising exercise for his George2Vietnam initiative, a “Wildlife Demand Reduction Campaign” geared at anti Rhino poaching.
Anton will live in this tent outside of the Monte Casino Bird garden. He climbed up at midday yesterday.
The aim is to raise R1 Million in 32 days. You can help by donating money but also by raising awareness of the event.
With the money, Anton will go to Vietnam, where most of the Rhino horn lands up, and begin an education campaign with his full-size rhino replica, George.
We spoke with Anton about the challenge as well as how he hopes to raise the money.
