"Helping Rhinos is forging innovative conservation, community and education initiatives to ensure the long-term survival of the rhino and other endangered wildlife in their natural habitat."
"We are working in Kenya, united with the country’s vision to reach a population of 2,000 black rhino by 2030. We share South Africa’s mission to restore healthy populations of black and white rhino in all key conservation areas, championing the benefits of emerging technological opportunities."
Did you know that rhinos have been around over 50 million years? They evolved time and time again as climate and environment changed, but now they're being hunted for their horns and suffer from extremely restrictive habitats due to growing human populations.
Helping Rhinos helps to protect and conserve rhinos with four key criteria:
- Preserve or develop new habitat for rhinos and other species
- Protect rhinos from poaching
- Provide information and education on the importance of the sustaining the rhino population to local communities and broader populations
- Sustain the species via other sustainable and scalable projects
They focus on 7 key areas to achieve these goals, including education, community and research.
- Sumatran Rhinos are the smallest, with White Rhinos being the largest
- Rhinos don't have any natural predators, and they're very gentle - did you know they're also herbivores?
- 3 of the 5 known species are classified as endangered
