3 a Day

Rhinos are dying at an alarming rate—3 are slaughtered every day. Tragically, their horn is hacked off to be sold on the black market while the animal is left to suffer and die.

On the brink of extinction

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.

Apple of our eye

With a love for red apples, a knack for painting, and a gentle personality that was one-in-a-million, Nola the northern white rhino was an icon and the matriarch of our San Diego Zoo Safari Park family. She was just one of only 4 northern white rhinos left on the planet. Sadly, November 22, 2015, was the day we lost our beloved Nola. Her loss was devastating for millions of Nola’s fans around the world and all of us at San Diego Zoo Global. Now, with only 3 left in the world, the northern white rhino is the most endangered animal on Earth and it’s a race against time to save them.

Hope for the Future

San Diego Zoo Global is leading the fight to save these gentle giants from extinction—and we can’t do it without your help. Generous donations from friends like you helped build the Nikita Kahn Rhino Rescue Center at the Safari Park. Home to 6 rescued rhinos, this one-of-a-kind sanctuary also houses our cutting-edge white rhino surrogacy program. It’s the only program like it in the world, and it’s the last hope for the northern white rhino.
