Our Projects: Appeal - Save the Rhino 2012

Location: South Africa, Namibia and India
Project Summary: The effect of wildlife crime on the world's rhino populations is driving them to the brink of extinction. Misplaced beliefs in the curative power of their horn and a newly affluent China driving demand means that unless we act today these vulnerable, gentle creatures will remain threatened. Please help us keep our rhino projects operational. Please help us to save the rhino.
The impact of wildlife crime on the rhino is devastating. But the projects that we support are effectively helping to protect the critically endangered one-horned Indian rhino and the black rhino in Africa. We need your support to continue this work. Thank you.
David Shepherd CBE
