“Girls, come on. Leave the saving of the world to the men? I don't think so. I don’t think so.” — Elastigirl
Meet South Africa’s all-female anti-poaching unit: the Black Mambas.
Since wildlife and safari have been such a huge inspiration behind many of our collections, the Anna Rosholt team decided to join forces with a group of phenomenal women through our Rhino Jewellery Collection.
The Black Mambas: Guardians of Wildlife
The Black Mambas are dedicated to the protection of wildlife. They’re the world's first officially formed, registered and recognised all-female wildlife ranger unit.
Since their start in 2013, these courageous women have patrolled the Greater Kruger National Park, serving at the forefront against rhino poaching.
Beyond their role as protectors of animals, the Black Mambas are also champions of their local communities, fostering harmony between people and wildlife and promoting sustainable practices.
The Anna Rosholt Rhino Range
Our Balu jewellery collection contains pieces named after and inspired by orphaned baby rhinos Balu, Khulula, Lula and Matimba who lost their parents to poaching.
As part of our promise to love and preserve our continent’s beauty, we will donate 10% of all sales from this collection to the Black Mambas so they can continue their fight against the poaching of rhinos and other endangered animals.
Through each purchase from this collection, we want to demonstrate that a meaningful impact can be made — one that safeguards the world's biodiversity and uplifts communities. We hope these pieces will start conversations about conservation and the power that women have to change and improve the status quo.
Together with the courageous women of the Black Mambas, we embrace the possibility of change and the responsibility to protect our planet's irreplaceable treasures.
