Adopt a Rhino

Relentless poaching for their horns and loss of their natural habitats, has led to a catastrophic fall in black rhino numbers.

The current poaching crisis in Africa is now so serious that authorities have stopped publicising the location of black rhinos for security reasons.

Rhino Map

Africa is home to both black and white rhinos, though these names are misleading, based on a mistranslation; both are actually grey. Rhino adoptions also help Asian rhinos. The Javan rhino is the most threatened rhino species with only around 72 left.

POACHING

Two African rhinos are killed by poaching every day; around 60 a month.

HABITAT LOSS

Asian rhinos are threatened by the loss of their forest, grassland and marshland habitat – mainly due to logging and expanding agriculture.

ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE

The recent surge in rhino poaching is fuelled by the increasing demand for rhino horn in Vietnam where it's seen as a symbol of status and wealth.

In southern Africa, droughts are likely to increase which will affect the region's biodiversity.

How We Can Help

We’ve been involved in helping rhinos in Africa since our inception in 1961. We’re supporting anti-poaching measures in rhino habitats and encouraging the pursuit, capture and prosecution of the organised criminal gangs smuggling rhino horn. We also work with TRAFFIC (the wildlife trade monitoring network) to reduce consumer demand for rhino horn.

We’re also working with local communities to help them make an income from their natural resources, including from ecotourism.

Your adoption and support will help us:

  • support vital conservation work throughout key rhino range
  • support effective anti-poaching measures
  • reduce consumer demand for rhino horn
  • fund our other essential work around the world
