SOS RHINO RECEIVES RHINOSKIN PRODUCT DONATION FROM SAUNDERS
Chicago, IL -- SOS RHINO received a donation of 25 RhinoSkin RhinoPak
3000 protective cases for handheld organizers from Saunders, manufacturer
and marketer of the RhinoSkin brand of protective PDA cases. The
SOS Rhino Borneo Team will use these rugged cases for the Sumatran
Rhino Project in Tabin Wildlife Reserve, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.
Annelisa Kilbourn, DVM, SOS Rhino's Field Scientist, said "We
looked at several RhinoSkin case designs and decided that the nylon
RhinoPak Case fit our Borneo Team's needs perfectly."
"We're very proud that our cases will be protecting SOS Rhino's
technology as they help to protect the endangered Sumatran rhino,"
said Mary Repke, Vice President, Marketing Saunders.
SOS RHINO Borneo team members, consisting of researchers, scientists,
and field assistants, are using the latest technology available
to coordinate the survey of the Sumatran rhinos in Tabin Wildlife
Reserve, Sabah, Borneo. The initial field research is focused on
determining the demographics of the rhino located in an area believed
to have the largest remaining population of the Bornean sub-species
of the Sumatran rhino (Dicerorhinus sumtraensis harrisoni).
The RhinoSkin RhinoPak 3000 Cases will be used to hold and protect
Handspring Visor PDAs (provided by Handspring Foundation), equipped
with Magellan's GPS companions along with other equipment. The Borneo
Team will use Cybertracker software (provided by Cybertracker),
linked with the GPS to collect data on their PDAs on the critically
endangered Sumatran rhino and its habitat in Borneo.
The RhinoSkin RhinoPak Cases are designed specifically to hold
and protect handheld computer devices and accessories. They are
also equipped with a convenient carry handle and belt loop attachment.
