Celebrate Rhinos Everywhere on Cinco de Rhino!


Join the International Rhino Foundation on Saturday, May 5, 2018 for our Cinco de Rhino celebration! Throw a party with friends, share fun facts, run your own online fundraising campaign and donate to support research and conservation of the world’s rhino species.

During this one day, we’re trying to raise much needed funding for rhino conservation – and to get people around the world talking about the importance of protecting endangered rhinos and their habitats. Can you help?




Help Us Raise $10,000 for Rhino Conservation

Make a donation today, run your own online fundraising campaign or host a Cinco de Rhino event, to help raise funds – every little bit helps!

  • $25 will provide one day’s fuel and support for rhino security patrols in Zimbabwe’s Bubye Valley Conservancy.
  • $50 will help buy a sniffer dog to track poachers in Southern African rhino reserves.
  • $100 will purchase drugs needed to safely immobilize Greater One-Horned rhinos to translocate them to secure habitats in India.
  • $250 will allow a Javan Rhino Protection Unit in Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon National Park to patrol on foot or by boat for one week.
  • $500 will purchase laboratory equipment to help vets at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary expand its captive breeding program.
