Adopt a Rhino

DESCRIPTION

On November 10th, 2011, the Western Black Rhinocerous was declared extinct. The only blame for the cause of this species extinction is poaching, which is the number one cause of death for the rhinos.

Fortunately, there are several non-profit organizations fighting for the conservation of these beautiful creatures. One such prime example is the International Rhino Foundation.



"IRF’s current major programs include:
1) Indonesia Rhino Protection Units, anti-poaching patrol units which protect Sumatran and Javan rhinos in the wild;
2) the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary, a research and breeding center for Sumatran rhinos in Way Kambas National Park;
3) the Javan Rhino Study and Conservation Area, a program to expand the only viable habitat for Javan rhinos in the world by 4,000 hectares;
4) Indian Rhino Vision 2020, a program aimed at increasing the number of Indian rhinos and spreading the population out over more protected areas;
5) Zimbabwe Lowveld Rhino Conservation Program, which provides management, monitoring and veterinary interventions for black rhinos in Zimbabwe; and
6) Operation Stop Poaching Now, a campaign to provide training and equipment to anti-poaching units in Zimbabwe and South Africa. IRF also supports scientific research, regularly providing grants for work that is directly applicable to management, propagation and conservation of rhinoceros species in nature and in captivity."



For 30 dollars, we can adopt a rhino from the International Rhino Foundation. All donations will go to the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary. See more information here: Adopt a Rhino- IRF.

A gift of $50 will enable Indonesia’s Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary to provide five days of food, medicine and care for one Sumatran rhino.

A gift of $100 will fund one rhino protection unit -- five rangers -- in Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon National Park while they patrol the park and prevent poaching of Javan rhinos and other animals for four days.

A gift of $1,000 will pay for one month of veterinary care for Zimbabwe’s population of black rhinos, enabling staff veterinarians to rescue and treat animals that have been injured by poachers or caught in snares.



**Hey all!

I want to introduce you to Andatu!





Isn't she just the cutest thing ever? She was just recently born in the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary- headed by the International Rhino Foundation. The Sumatran rhinoceros is one of the most endangered mammals on Earth. Perhaps no more than 100 animals survive in small, isolated forest fragments in Indonesia and Malaysia.


(Andatu with mom, Ratu)

The Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary (SRS), a 250-acre complex located within Indonesia's Way Kambas National Park, Indonesia, is currently home to five rhinos that are part of an intensively-managed research and breeding program aimed at increasing the Sumatra's wild rhino population. At the sanctuary, the rhinos reside in large, open areas where they can experience a natural rainforest habitat while still receiving state-of-the-art veterinary care and nutrition.

Consider supporting the cause on P2S or donate directly to the Foundation! This means a lot to me!

Thanks!

I had started up a cause here on P2S a while back to support the IRF, and I was hoping this little cutie would help drum up interest! I really think that it is important to support the efforts of the International Rhino Foundation, because, I don't know about you, but I don't want my kids to learn about what a rhino is by looking through an extinct species book in school...
