My project:
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.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
The NCA is not a nationalpark but a pioneering experiment in multi-purpose land use. Tanzania´s government has established an independent body - the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority (NCAA) - to administer the area.
The NCA aims to maintain the the historic balance of people nd nature in a way wich has not been possible in many parts of Africa. At stake are the rich biodiversity and ecology of the Serengeti Plains and Ngorongoro Highlands, the major palaeontological and archaeologicals sites and the vital water catchment areas. Within all this, man and wildlive have to live together without harm or destroying each other´s habitats. The jewel in Ngorongoro´s crown is a deep volcanic crater - the largest unflooded and unbroken caldera in the world- 19,2 km in diameter, 610m deep and 280 sq. km in area. The rich pasture and permanent water of the Crater floor supports a latge resident population of wildlive of up to 25.000 - predominantly grazing - animals.
These include wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, buffalo, eland, kongoni and warthog. The swamps and the forest provide additional resources for hippo, elefant, waterbuck, reedbuck and bushbuck, baboons and vervet monkeys.
The steep inner slopes provide a habitat for dikdik and the rare mountain reedbuck. Jackals thrive in the crater and bat-eared foxes live in the short grass areas. Predatory animals - lion, leopard, cheetah, serval cats - live off the abundant wildlive, and large packs of hyena roam the crater, making their own kills and scavenging from others.
The Crater is a dynamic and constantly changing ecosystem and the numbers and proportion of some animals has fluctuated considerably over past 30 years.
