Original text on this topic:
Chispite Junior School's two grade six classes raised Z$ 27,000 for black rhino conservation in 1997. The money was handed over to the Zambezi Society, a regionally focussed environmental organisation which over past 10 years has cahnnelled over Z$2 m into helping conserve rhinos in Matusadona. This year's funds will be used to buy food for orphaned rhino calves being handreared at Park Headquarters in Tashinga. Over the past decade, the Zambezi Society instigated the International rhino Survival campaign in early 1990s and after the establishment of 4 well-guarded rhino sanctuaries across Zimbawe, focused attention on Matusadona.
