The International Rhino Foundation Alternative Holiday Gift Giving Guide

In addition to making a donation to the International Rhino Foundation (IRF) this year, you can shop our alternative holiday gift guide. The alternative (rhino) gift guide is filled with items that don’t require any shipping at all, guaranteeing you will have what you need for the holidays. You can adopt a rhino for a loved one, replant a tree in Indonesia for a Sumatran rhino or fill a ranger’s backpack with essential items. 

With each of the below alternative gifts, you will receive an immediate email that has a link to a digital package you can then forward to your gift recipient or download and print to give them.

Adopt a Rhino

You can help provide care and protect rhinos by symbolically adopting a rhino either in your own name, or as a gift for a relative or friend who supports wildlife conservation. Choose from a black rhino, greater one-horned rhino, or K9 ranger dog that protects rhinos from poachers. When you adopt a rhino, you’re protecting an imperiled rhino species and its habitat. Your rhino adoption funds IRF’s conservation programs for that species and ensures they can thrive in the wild.

For each adoption, you’ll receive:

  • A digital certificate to print
  • A digital photo of your adopted rhino to share on social media
  • A bio on your adopted rhino
  • An exclusive rhino adoption sticker

Replant a Tree in the Indonesian Rainforest

$1 plants a tree in Sumatran rhino habitat

This gift will help IRF replant native trees in the Indonesian rainforest of Way Kambas National Park, Sumatra. The park is home to endangered Sumatran rhinos as well as tigers, elephants and a variety of other wildlife. Habitat restoration is critical for their survival. With every $1,000 donated, IRF and its partners will replant an entire acre – ensuring adequate habitat for rhinos and the many species that share their home. 

When you plant a tree in Indonesia, you will receive a special digital badge to share proudly as recognition of your efforts to protect Sumatran rhinos. 

Fill a Ranger’s Backpack

$300 fills a Ranger’s backpack for three weeks

This gift will help ‘Fill a Ranger’s Backpack’ and provide the essential supplies needed by Rhino Protection Units as they keep critically endangered Sumatran and Javan rhinos safe from poachers.

Each backpack donation comes with a digital certificate and shareables for you and your gift recipient.
