In 2018 Ilse also partnered with the Limpopo Rhino Security group to help raise funds to curb the ongoing rhino poaching. To make the experience even more personal, Ilse & her husband where allowed to spend a morning with rhinos at an unknown destination. Ilse's husband Abraham who is a enthusiastic wildlife photographer where allowed to take as many photographs as they wanted to. Using the reference photos of that morning Ilse painted three stunning large Black & white paintings. These were auctioned of at a prestige event that May in Polokwane hosted by the Limpopo Security Group. A Benefactor bought all three paintings as a set.
