Rhino adoption for Rhino

December 01 2020

At Rhino Doors, we pride ourselves on our bespoke range of engineered doors which have the strength to protect national assets. However, this strength and protection is also prominent in the wild and in captivity with the protection of rhinos.  

That’s why we are delighted to announce that we have successfully adopted an Eastern black rhino, located on our doorstep, at Folly-Farm in Pembrokeshire.

Stuart Lawrence, Managing Director of Rhino Doors, said: “Rhinos are tough animals, but sadly there are less than 650 left in the wild, across the world.  

“Folly-farm are one of only seven zoos in the UK which care for this rare species. So, as a company we wanted to play our part in supporting and protecting them for many years to come.” 

In January this year the farm took a huge step in the conservation of the black rhino as they welcomed, Glyndŵr, the first Welsh rhino, into the world through their breeding programme.

Folly-farm showcase hundreds of exotic animals, many of which, like the rhino, are in great danger of becoming extinct in the wild. But, by taking part in the programme through the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums (EAZA) they are able to ensure that species are given the best chance for survival.
