Rhinos are dying at an alarming rate—3 rhinos are slaughtered every day. Tragically, their horn is hacked off and sold on the black market while the animal is left to die.
The northern white rhino has suffered worst of all. Decades of rampant poaching have decimated this species to the brink of extinction. And with only three left on the planet, the northern white rhino is the most endangered animal on Earth.
San Diego Zoo Global is leading the fight to save this critically endangered species—but we need your help! Through generous support from friends like you, we recently rescued 6 rhinos and built the Nikita Kahn Rhino Rescue Center at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. This one-of-a-kind sanctuary is home to these rescued animals and dedicated to the conservation and reproduction of white rhinos. Now, with your help, we must create new technologies and discover alternative methods of assisted reproduction—it’s their only hope for the future.
Bringing species back from the brink of extinction is our mission. With the most successful breeding program for rhinos around the globe and the largest zoo-based, conservation science team in the world we are dedicated to ensuring sustainable rhino populations.
Let’s join together to save them before it’s too late! If we don’t act now, these gentle giants will be lost forever.
