Mission Statement

The International Rhino Foundation is dedicated to the survival of the world’s rhino species through conservation and research.

IRF Programs

In response to the global crisis in rhino conservation, the International Rhino Foundation protects particularly threatened rhino populations in the wild, while also supporting applied research that can help to improve the chances for long-term survival of all rhino species. We have already made great strides in preventing further declines of these magnificent animals and turning rhino population trends around in the areas in which we work.

IRF funds and operates field programs in Asia and Africa targeted to the rhino species most in need of and most appropriate for intensive protection and management.
