THE STORY:

Marc Ecko Enterprises wrote -

In partnership with the Save the Rhino International Inc., Marc Ecko Enterprises is celebrating one of the world's most beloved animals, the rhino. Starting May 18th on Endangered Species Day, we are launching a campaign of awareness about the unfortunate decline of the rhino across the globe. To help protect this endangered species we're encouraging and accepting donations from May 18th to the 23rd on behalf of Save the Rhino International Inc. All donations go towards rhino conservation programs ran by Save the Rhino International Inc.

Save the Rhino International Inc. goals as an organization are: 

  • To increase the number of rhinos in genetically viable populations in the wild
  • To enhance the integrity of ecosystems
  • To ensure that local communities benefit from conservation activities

Save the Rhino International Inc. focuses on genetically viable populations of critically endangered rhinoceros species in the wild. “Genetically viable” populations are generally taken to mean those with a minimum of 20 individuals. In some areas, smaller populations have been known to breed successfully, although it is not know what the impact is on the long-term genetic diversity of such a population. For rhino populations to qualify as being “wild”, three conditions must be satisfied:

  • They must be free-ranging within an area large enough to sustain a breeding group
  • The area in question must consist of natural rhino habitat
  • They must survive by feeding off natural vegetation in the area (ie, without human intervention)
