In South Africa, rhino poaching has increased by over 7,800% in 10 years, so this Valentine’s, we’re showing them some love.
Rhino horns are seen as a status symbol, and are used as a hangover cure. They may not be the most glamourous animals in the world, but we love rhinos, so if you do too, you can help by adopting one today.

A WONDERFUL GIFT
Give a gift that will help protect the future of rhinos and their habitats.
There's been a 9,300% increase in rhino poaching in South Africa in the past 8 years. On average three rhinos a day are poached here.
Asian rhinos are threatened by the loss of their forest, grassland and marshland habitat – mainly due to human settlements, logging and expanding agriculture.
ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE
The recent surge in rhino poaching is to fuel 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.
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
