AN East London schoolboy has turned his love of rhinos into a board game to try and save the critically endangered species from extinction.

Inspired by Thandi, the Sunshine Coast rhino who somehow survived after her horn was hacked off by poachers, Riley Devan, 10, created the unique game as a way to raise funds to protect Eastern Cape rhino from poachers.

The Selborne Primary Grade 5 pupil said he had decided to try and help raise funds for conservation after his school participated in the Rooting for Rhino campaign which saw hundreds of schoolchildren across South Africa standing to join hands in a rhino formation.
