At IRF, we believe that local, on-the-ground organizations are the best and most knowledgeable stewards of rhinos and their habitats. We work closely with like-minded conservation organizations in each of our range countries to operate our rhino conservation programs. Our local partners and staff in India, Indonesia and Africa have the technical expertise, local knowledge and relationships to achieve lasting conservation results. And, by investing in our on-the-ground partners, IRF is able to keep its overhead costs low and ensure that the majority of our funding – more than 84% — goes directly to field programs where it can be most effectively used to protect endangered rhinos.
Our local partners are saving rhinos every day! Learn more about on-the-ground partners below, or contact IRF to find out more.
