Save the Rhino works to conserve viable populations of Critically Endangered rhinos in Africa and Asia. We recognise that the future of wildlife is inextricably linked to the communities that share its habitat. By funding field projects and through education, our goal is to deliver material, long-lasting and widespread benefits to rhinos and other endangered species, ecosystems and to the people living in these areas.

Why choose Save the Rhino
Three of the five species of rhinos are classed as Critically Endangered and therefore face an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild. All rhino species are threatened by poaching and habitat loss.
Rhino poaching is at a 16 year high, with these charismatic creatures being taken at a rate of two to three per week. Rhinos are poached for their horns which are used in traditional medicine in Asia and as handles for ornamental daggers worn in Yemen. With an increasing demand from the Asian market, opportunistic poaching has been replaced by concerted attacks by organised, highly armed, criminal gangs and rhino poaching has escalated.
The projects supported by Save the Rhino International work to protect and manage habitats as well as educate and empower local communities. Using rhinos as a flagship species, these projects help protect numerous species and ecosystem services within the habitat shared with the rhino and promote long-term sustainability in these areas.Registered Charity Number: 1035072
