Rhino Products have extended their sponsorship of Chester Zoo's Black Rhinos.

Deeside based van accessory manufacturer, Rhino Products, have extended their sponsorship of Chester Zoo’s Black Rhinos which will support conservation work in Kenya.

The extension means they will remain as official ‘Corporate Champions and Conservation Enablers’ at the zoo for another 12 months with the deal continuing to fund the purchase of consumables for use at a dedicated laboratory in Kenya’s Lewa WIldlife Conservancy.

This vital work allows samples to be analysed in the field as well as supporting more successful ex-situ breeding (conservation of the wildlife outside their natural habitats).

Complementing the anti-poaching work which takes place at Lewa, one of Chester Zoo’s key conservation partners in Kenya, the ultimate aim is to re-populate the Eastern Black Rhino of which there are less than 500 left in the wild.
