‘Stand Together’ Music Video Supports Rhino Conservation in Namibia
A new music video for a conservation-driven song called Stand Together showcases the Namibian people’s commitment to protecting their nation’s prolific wildlife, especially the critically endangered black rhino populations.
Several Namibian artists combined their musical talents to create “Stand Together,” an inspiring song dedicated to saving the desert-adapted black rhinos that live in the wild areas of northwest Namibia. These caring musicians partnered with a local nonprofit conservation organization, Save the Rhino Trust Namibia, to produce this compelling music video in a joint effort to help end poachers’ senseless slaughter of African rhinos.
The song lyrics are sung in both indigenous languages and in English to help connect this important conservation message with the local populations that live within and around Namibia’s rhino ranges.

Saving Rhinos in Namibia
For more than 30 years, Save the Rhino Trust has worked tirelessly to monitor and protect Namibia’s black rhinos, working in tandem with Namibia’s private and communal conservancies, other NGOs, the Namibian government, and Namibia’s Ministry of Environment and Tourism. Ecotourism in Namibia plays a powerful role in supporting sustainable policies, practices, and lifestyles that support the continued survival of African rhinos in Namibia and beyond.
Together with the people of Namibia and Save the Rhino Trust, these musicians are saving rhinos with music; standing together to help protect and grow the country’s rhino populations.
Will you stand together with them?
