Ways to Help for World Rhino Day

This year for World Rhino Day, we’re working to raise $10,000 to purchase wildlife crime investigative kits for forest officers in India. You can help ensure that wildlife criminals will be found, arrested and prosecuted by purchasing an Investigative Kit for forest guards in IndiaEach kit costs $500 and includes all the equipment officers need to investigate a wildlife crime scene and collect evidence that will be legally admissible in a court case.

In honor of World Rhino Day, we hope to purchase 20 kits – 2 for each rhino range unit in Northeast India. Can you help? You can purchase an entire kit yourself, or make a contribution of any amount towards a kit.
