Every rhino counts.
More than just words, it’s fact.
Female rhinos reach sexual maturity at 3-6 years of age. This means it’s critical to keep them protected until they are able to effectively add to the population.
Once they are successfully impregnated, the average gestation period of a rhino is 16 months. When a baby is born, he stays with his mom for a over a year, or until mom is pregnant again.

The lifespan of a wild rhino is approximately 35-40 years.
This leads to the potential of one female rhino birthing up to ten babies in a lifetime under optimal circumstances (i.e no poaching)!!
Thus by saving one rhino, you are potentially saving an integral portion of an entire population.
We need your help in protecting rhinos. Yes, every rhino counts. Every action and every dollar adds up. Please help us help…
