The environment and conservation are important issues to Condor. We want to protect and care for the world we cycle in. We have a number of environmental policies in place to reduce pollution and waste, and protect the planet. We support Helping Rhinos, who strive to adopt an innovative model for conservation.
Helping raise money for rhinos
Three rhinos are poached every day, leaving only 28,000 in the wild.
Sold only on the black market, rhino horn has become one of the most expensive commodities in the world.

Black Mambas are South Africa’s first all-female anti-poaching unit. The team of thirty-six women work in the Balule Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger Park. Since the project began in 2014, the team have foiled poaching ambushes and reduced the risk to the rhinos in the region.
OL PEJETA CONSERVANCY
Ol Pejeta Conservancy is located in the Laikipia county of Kenya and is home to both the largest population of critically endangered black rhino in East Africa and the last two northern white rhinos in the world. The conservancy is a role model for the future of conservation.
The Zululand Rhino Orphanage was created following a brutal attack by poachers on a rhino orphanage in the area. The orphanage is in a secret location and is home to baby rhinos whose mothers have been poached. Baby rhinos require twenty-four hour care to ensure they grow up fit and healthy.
THE LAST NORTHERN WHITE RHINO
In recent years, rhino numbers have collapsed due to poaching for their horns. The last male northern white rhino, Sudan, passed away in March, leaving only two females with which conservationists hope to save the species from extinction.
Helping Rhinos works in partnership with Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the home of the last northern white rhinos.
Local communities are often resentful of the huge tracts of land required to keep animals in their natural habitat. The Ol Pejeta ranch is championing what it calls an integrated land-management model that sees it keep cattle and grow wheat on sections of the land, which means employment for more locals and more income to fund conservation efforts.
