Introduction

Across Africa, black and white rhinos are fighting for survival as poachers decimate their numbers. Botswana could be their last safe haven and final hope. Here, Rhino Conservation Botswana (RCB) keeps these precious animals safe from extinction, under the royal patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Harry.
And you can help!
 
Who is Rhino Conservation Botswana?

RCB protects Botswana's wild black and white rhinos. We work with partners to bring rhinos in peril from poaching to the safety of Botswana, where we are appointed by the Botswana government to monitor and protect them.

We are working to engage local communities in rhino conservation, as we build a thriving population of rhinos that, one day, can repopulate other areas of Africa from which rhinos have been lost due to poaching.

To do this, we need your support. 

What's the rhino crisis?

Rhinos were once abundant throughtout Africa and Asia, but since 2008 poaching has increased dramatically, pushing them close to extinction.

Poaching is driven by demand for rhino horn in East Asia, where  it is used in traditional medicine. As a result, horn is one of the most valuable natural commodities on earth today, and is worth more than gold. Yet scientific studies have proven that rhino horn is made of keratin- the same as our fingernails- and has no medical properties.

  Africa’s rhinos are in at a tipping point. More are being killed than are being born and, if things go on as they are, they could go extinct by 2024.

How can you help RCB?

Botswana's rhinos are increasing in number, thanks to our hard work. As the population grows, RCB needs to increase its capacity to keep them all safe. And to do this, we need your help

Every donation – large or small – goes directly to support RCB’s efforts to protect and grow black and white rhino populations in the wild in Botswana. Together, we can help rhinos beat extinction.

The fight to save the rhino cannot be won alone. But with your support, we can make a difference and give Africa’s rhinos a brighter future. Find out more about RCB and how your donation could help
