1st Horison are a Scout group on the West Rand near Johannesburg in South Africa. This project was built as a Springbok Scout construction project. With a little inspiration from the amazing Israeli pioneering sculptures, Ruan designed and led a team of Scouts to build this structure to raise awareness for Rhino conservation. In South Africa, 668 Rhinos were lost to poaching last year, and there are indications that this year will see similar losses. RAGE is one group co-ordinating efforts to reduce the poaching.
Congrats to Ruan on designing and building this, and good luck with the rest of your Springbok!
