BENEFITING: SAVE THE RHINO INTERNATIONAL INC

EVENT: Groupon Earth Day Challenge

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

Save the Rhino International Inc works to conserve genetically viable populations of critically endangered rhinoceros species in the wild, by fundraising for and making grants to rhino- and community-focused conservation projects in Africa and Asia.

The funds raised by SRI Inc are used to support projects that address rhino conservation through a number of measures:

  • Community conservation programmes that develop sustainable methods by which local communities can creatively manage natural resources
  • Environmental education programmes that teach children and adults about the importance of preserving natural resources and address human-wildlife conflict issues
  • Anti-poaching and monitoring patrols, which detect and deter poachers and gather information about rhino ranges and numbers 
  • Translocations, so that rhinos from established populations can be reintroduced to former habitats
  • Research into the threats to rhino survival and alternatives to the use of rhino horn
  • Veterinary work, such as the implanting of transmitters into horns, or removal of snares
