Project: "Rettet die Nashörner" e. V. (Save the rhinos)
Because of an animal documentary on the TV channel "Bayerisches Fernsehen" my attention was drawn to the catastrophic situation of the rhinos when I, Kilian Hermann, was 11 years old.
Since I don't want them to become extinct I've decided to make my contribution to save them.
In March 1997 I asked my uncle to design a signature list according to my imagination. I then began collecting signatures for the action "Stop the rhinoceros tusk trade" at my school and others in Ottobrunn, a small town near Munich. Some people who wanted to support me started collecting as well.
With the help of press releases in local parts of newspapers I pointed to my action.
On several info locations in Ottobrunn and Neubiberg I collected signatures as well and sold stickers that were given to me by WWF-Germany.
The earned money then was given to WWF as well as the copies of 1.849 signatures.
On September 14, 1998 I went to Bonn and handed the copies of the signature lists over to the State Department and to the Embassies of Jemen, Sudan and China.
Afterwards I began collecting donations for projects of the WWF and of the Zoological Society in Frankfurt. With the help of documentaries in radios and on TV. I was able to find not only private persons, but also business people from Ottobrunn and people from all over Germany who want to support me for saving the rhinos.
At the moment I am having donation promises of US$ 60,00 per month. Of the already collected money US$ 200,00 were given to WWF for the gamekeeper program in Namibia. Since 1999 I give all the money to the Zoological Society in Frankfurt for the rhinos in the Ngorongoro crater.(1999 - 2005, US$ 5.100,00 )
On January 25, 1999 I founded an association with the aim of informing, collecting donations, providing donation receipts and providing money for particular projects.
I contacted the "Rhino Cops", an association of police men from Berlin that was found in 1997 to save the rhinos.
We inform each other about particular activities.
The Rhino Cops support projects in Namibia with the help of the German Namibian Society.
I am also in touch with the "Achimern Friends of rhinos"and the"Brettener Friends of Rhinos".
Since the beginning of 2000 I've taken over a sponsorship for a new born rhino in the Ngorongoro crater.
It was a great honour for me to got in the Year 2001 in Frankfurt the Bruno H. Schubert Environmentaward. The presentation of prize in the Kaisersaal by Generalkonsul Bruno H. Schubert
I hope my distribution helps to save the rhinos.
The action "Save the rhinos" is accepted as charitable.
