Community Involvement

Helping Rhinos is an international charity dedicated to the conservation of rhinos and other endangered wildlife. They focus on innovative conservation strategies, community involvement, and education initiatives to ensure the long-term survival of rhinos in their natural habitats. The charity is actively involved in Kenya, supporting the country's goal of increasing its black rhino population to 2,000 by 2030. In South Africa, they work to restore healthy populations of black and white rhinos across key conservation areas.

Team Spirit & Enjoyment

The charity collaborates with dedicated partners both internationally and locally, within rhino habitats. Their projects include caring for orphaned rhinos, supporting anti-poaching patrols (notably with the Black Mambas, an all-female anti-poaching unit), and aiding in the monitoring and growth of rhino populations. These efforts contribute to creating a sustainable future for all rhino species. The work of Helping Rhinos is fueled by the generosity of donors, underscoring the importance of community support in wildlife conservation.
