Announcing SRT’s new CEO

After almost exactly a year since joining SRT, Marcia Fargnoli has advised us that she is leaving to take up a new role in the legal and environmental field. She has achieved much in her year and we wish her well and look forward to working with her in the new role where her efforts will overlap with SRT’s in some areas.

It gives me great pleasure to inform you that SRT has appointed Simson Uri-Khob, a longtime senior leader at SRT and a highly qualified and experienced person to take on the role of CEO with effect from 1 July 2014.

Simson will be Khorixas based and will manage SRT from our northern base of Mai-Go-Ha with the Swakopmund office continuing to be the administrative centre.

The Trustees have every confidence that Simson will lead the Trust with confidence and skill through these difficult and challenging times. Should you wish to send him an email, his email address is:

In closing, I would like to thank you most sincerely for your continued support of Save the Rhino Trust. Without your on-going contribution to our work, we would not be able to boast of more than three decades of protecting “our” special and unique desert-adapted rhinos. In turn, this has allowed a five-fold increase in the size of the population – an achievement that can make us all feel justifiably proud.

Once again, our sincere appreciation for your past, present and future support of our work.

Best regards

Mr Dudu Murorua (Chairman)


Save the Rhino Trust in Namibia has been successfully protecting the desert-adapted black rhino of the Kunene and Erongo regions for 30 years.  Working closely with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, our dedicated teams of trackers go out on daily foot/camel/donkey and vehicle patrols to monitor this last truly free-ranging population of black rhino in the world.  With South Africa's poaching crisis raging on our doorstep, we need your support NOW to continue our work and save these magnificent and unique creatures for future generations to enjoy.
