About Helping Rhinos
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.
What are we trying to do?
Rhino have been on the planet for 50 million years, and have evolved into their current form throughout that time as the environment and their habitat has changed. They now face their biggest challenge as man restricts their natural habitat and kills them for their horn.
They are perhaps symbolic of a struggle between man and the natural world.
We aim to help the species survive for future generations, this means that we favour projects that support the development of sustainable populations.
How are we helping Rhinos?
Helping Rhinos work with a small number of partners, predominantly in Africa, who meet some or all of the following criteria, they:
Preserve or develop new habitat for rhinos and other species
Protect rhinos from poaching
Provide information and education on the importance of sustaining the rhino population to local communities and broader populations
Sustain the species via other sustainable and scalable projects
