There are five species of rhino; black and white rhinos live on the plains and woodlands of Africa, whereas the Javan, Sumatran and Indian rhinos live in the tropical forests of Asia. Several threats are pushing rhinos closer to extinction. Illegal hunting and poaching for their horns, used in traditional Asian medicine, have caused rhino numbers to fall dramatically.
Rhinos are also under threat from loss of habitat caused by human encroachment and agricultural development. With loss of habitat, populations become smaller and more isolated, which limits breeding opportunities.
Funds from your adoption will support Born Free’s work in Meru National Park, Kenya. Born Free supports the parks rhino sanctuary by funding vital equipment for the sanctuary’s rhino rangers, which supports both its vital work and ranger welfare.
