BENEFITING: The International Rhino Foundation
The Indian Mountain School Green Team is hoping to raise $1000.00 to adopt a Sumatran rhinoceros living at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Indonesia's Way Kambas National Park. Sumatran rhinos are one of the most endangers mammals on Earth with fewer than 100 individuals left on the planet.
The five remaining rhinoceros species are in the last moments of their existence due to poaching and loss of habitat. We can help save these extraordinary creatures from disappearing entirely by raising awareness of their plight, protecting the environments in which they live, supporting those who guard rhinos against poachers, and helping to promote rhino reproduction so that their populations may grow.
Our funds will go to the International Rhinoceros Foundation whose programs include:
- A research and breeding center for Sumatran rhinos at Way Kambas National Park
- Anti-poaching patrol units which protect Sumatran and Javan rhinos in the wild
- A program to expand the only viable habitat for Javan rhinos in the world by 4,000 hectares
- A program aimed at increasing the number of Indian rhinos and spreading the population out over more protected areas
- Zimbabwe Lowveld Rhino Conservation Program, which provides management, monitoring and veterinary interventions for black rhinos in Zimbabwe
- Operation Stop Poaching Now, a campaign to provide training and equipment to anti-poaching units in Zimbabwe and South Africa.
