2019 Annual Report

Rhinos face challenges every year and 2019 was no different. IRF takes the approach of maximizing options and minimizing regrets, tackling the challenges facing rhinos using multi-faceted strategies. There is more work than can be accomplished in an individual lifetime, but by working together with our partners we can achieve our goal of ensuring all five rhino species survive for future generations.
