World Rhino Day is Wednesday, September 22, but why not celebrate rhinos all month long? Leading up to the big day in three weeks, we’ll be sharing rhino stories from our partners around the world, highlights from past World Rhino Days, and ways you can celebrate and help us spread awareness for all five rhino species. Join Team Rhino as we KEEP THE FIVE ALIVE. To kick off World Rhino MONTH, here are a few ways you can start celebrating:
For the month of September, we’ll be selling this limited edition 2021 World Rhino Day shirt. This shirt design is only available this year until September 30th, so get your orders in! By buying a shirt (or more!) you’re helping rhinos in two ways: of course profits from the shirt sales go to our rhino conservation efforts, AND wearing the shirt is a great conversation starter and the perfect opportunity to tell people about rhinos. A lot of people still don’t know there are FIVE species of rhino, so this is a great way for Team Rhino to spread awareness. There are four shirt styles and multiple color options, something for every rhino lover you know. To make sure you have the best chance to get your order delivered by September 22nd, we’re running shorter batches that print and ship every two days.
Also, we’ve created this social media toolkit for World Rhino Day with graphics and captions ready to go – feel free to share these or any of the posts you see on our social media platforms. Just download the graphics, copy and paste the caption, and post to your favorite social platform. We also love seeing the creativity of Team Rhino and look forward to seeing your own unique rhino posts each year! Make sure to tag us (Facebook: @InternationalRhinoFoundation ; Twitter & Instagram: @rhinosirf) and/or use the World Rhino Day hashtags: #WorldRhinoDay #WRD2021 #TeamRhino #KeeptheFiveAlive
Thank you for your continued support, we hope everyone has a very happy World Rhino MONTH! Stay tuned for our annual State of the Rhino Report being released on September 20th along with more social media graphics to share about the status of each of the five rhino species. Make sure you’re signed up to our e-newsletter to be the first to see State of the Rhino 2021.
