Summary

Political instability and human demand for rhino horn led to increased poaching and the annihilation of this species. Today, there are just two northern white rhinos remaining in the world, Najin and Fatu - mother and daughter. They live on Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya and are protected by armed guards 24/7. We - humans - are responsible. However, there is hope. We have embarked on a ground-breaking program to save this species and are inviting you to join us.

Challenge

We have created fourteen northern white rhino embryos which will be introduced into southern white rhino surrogates. Two suitable surrogates and a teaser bull have been selected and moved into a 45-acre enclosure, where they are being closely monitored by their dedicated caregivers. This is crucial in establishing the onset of ovulation and other processes required for successful embryo implantation. However, we desperately need your help.

Solution

The COVID-19 Pandemic is by far the biggest threat we have ever had to face. With our tourism revenues still severely compromised, we urgently need your help to continue providing the best level of care and ensure our rhinos are protected from poachers - day and night. Your support is vital to sustaining our essential conservation work during this crisis.

Long-Term Impact

By donating today, you could help save a species. You will also be supporting one of the richest wilderness areas on the planet, the largest Critically Endangered black rhino population in Central and East Africa and a myriad of other Endangered and Vulnerable species including African wild dog, cheetah, lion, hippo, Beisa oryx, Grevy's zebra and the locally threatened Jackson's Hartebeest. Be a hero today and join us on this incredible journey. Thank you! Photographs by Justin Mott.
