More about Rhinos

There are five different species of rhino: the African black rhino and the African white rhino, and in Asia, the greater one-horned rhino, Javan rhino and Sumatran rhino.

Location: Southern, Central, Eastern and Western Africa, South and South East Asia

Habitat: Tropical and Subtropical Grasslands, Savannas and Shrublands

Wild population: Less than 3,000 Asian rhinos. Around 18,000 African rhinos

The threats to rhinos

  • Poaching and illegal trading of their horns, used in traditional Asian medicine and for dagger handles in the Middle East
  • Loss of habitat due to increased farming, human settlement and logging
  • Small isolated populations of Asian rhinos increases the risk of inbreeding

How your adoption can help:

  • £60 (or £5 a month) could pay for one immobilisation dart needed to sedate a rhino for transportation
  • £120 (or £10 a month) could cover the cost of training one field office in anti-poaching techniques and rhino monitoring in Nepal


Lankeu was named after a retired field ranger (his name is the African equivalent of Christopher). He was born on 10 May 1998, has five siblings and is now in his prime.

And according to our field rangers he’s inquisitive, energetic and fiercely protective of his territory. The rangers tell us he’s a rhino to watch out for in every sense of the word, as he chases anything that strays across his path - including them!
