Thank you!





It's been just under 3 short weeks since we released the Rhino Awareness event into RuneScape, and already thousands of you have learned more about the critical danger rhinos are in, and have gained your own mini Rhino pet in the process.

We hop into game regularly, and it's been a real delight to see so many of you sporting your White & Black royal rhinos, showing your support to the cause and rallying up against illegal poachers.

Our amazing analytics team have been hard at work processing data from this event, and have been kind enough to provide us a load of juicy data pertaining to all things Rhino. Sharing is caring, so feast your eyes on this encouraging table!

It goes without saying that we're incredibly thankful for the support you have all shown towards this truly wonderful charity. Your support will go along way in helping protect this vulnerable species, and is testament to how united the RuneScape community really is.

Don't forget we'll be hosting an in-game party tomorrow to celebrate the events success. More information can be found here.

Thanks,
The RuneScape Team

Interesting Statistics! Thanks for posting this! I never even new that rhinos were near extinction before this even, so I definitely learned a great deal!

I enjoyed testing my knowledge on Rhino Awareness, would be great to see similar events incorporating a variety of endangered species since there is such a massive list (polar bears, tigers, turtles etc). It would show we can help raise awareness and learn while we play :). Thank you for showing support about such a thing.

All the best,

Please elaborate on how this event is expected to help protect them.

Is it that we are now subconsciously more likely to donate, or become a member of a wildlife charity?

Are they planning on using this as publicity for a campaign?

Any plans on doing an event to highlight the plight of birds on the brink of extinction in the UK due to being illegally killed? With some means of donations to fund monitoring of birds via trackers, and also lobbying.


Specifically the Hen Harrier.

It's great to see supportive events like these incorporated into the game. I certainly learned something new about Rhinos - and the questions made me search and look up information for myself.

Also... I love seeing statistics about players and game content! More please :)

As the 21st century progresses, wildlife conservation and environmental protection will become even more important as the human population continues to grow and consume additional resources.

A lot of young people (teens, 20's, some 30's) play RuneScape (including me). It will be our generation's responsibility to tackle these difficult problems. Jagex's playerbase is the perfect demographic for raising awareness of these issues.

Thanks for the statistics, I'd love to have access to that RuneScape Analytics program for 10 minutes :P
