2016 Annual Report

This year marks the International Rhino Foundation’s 25th year of working to conserve the world’s rhinos. Since 1991, we have protected and conserved rhinos in areas where they are most in need of attention and where conservation resources will have the greatest impact. We do this by maintaining a hard-working presence in rhino range countries, and by partnering with like-minded organizations to meet our mutual goals. All of us at the International Rhino Foundation passionately believe that our commitment will help save these magnificent creatures from extinction.
