Save the Rhino
Connecting Conservation and Communities Save the Rhino International 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.

Running of the Rhinos's fundraising page

My page:

You're an absolute legend for making it this far! Please don't mind us while we do a quick victory dance in your honour. 

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed onto Save the Rhino. Simply click on "Donate now" and you'll be lead through a simple step by step process.

To put your donation into perspective:

£10 will buy a foam mattress for a ranger to sleep on when out on patrol

£20 will buy a pair of handcufs to detain a poacher

£25 will fund a day's food in the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary

£55 will buy a sleeping bag for a ranger on patrol

£110 will buy a tracking tag for one rhino horn

Now go celebrate, knowing that you've made some lucky rhino a bit safer.

P.S. An important note for those gems living in the UK. "Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this." In other words, the UK government will give money to the rhinos if you're a UK tax payer. Now that's a sweat deal!
