How can I volunteer for SRI?

We are not able to arrange volunteering for you with the rhino programmes themselves.

There are many ways you can send your donations to SRI. Please see our donate section for our postal address, making payments through our website or using Paypal. If you are still unsure please contact our office manager on email@example.com.
How much money does SRI spend on governance costs?
We are very proud of our low governance costs. As a UK registered charity all of our accounts have to be externally audited and can be seen on the charity commission’s website. We also publish an annual review which you can find here.
I need some information for my homework/thesis/dissertation – can you help?
Each year, we receive hundreds of requests for assistance from school children and students. Unfortunately, we can't assist with specific questions, arrange interviews or answer questionnaires.
However there is information about rhinos and the discussions around how best to protect them on our website which can be found here. You can also read about the debate on complicated subjects in our thorny issues. Alternatively if you cannot find information on our website then the Rhino Resource Centre that SRI also helps to fund is a fantastic resource for your project.
Why does Save the Rhino spend money on fundraising?
We spend money on fundraising for the purpose of raising more money for our programmes. We try to limit this as much as we can and always aim to make £3 for every £1 that we spend. Read about how our money is spent in our annual review.
How can I learn more about discussions around rhino issues?
We have lots of information around rhino issues such as trophy hunting, legalising the horn trade, dehorning and many more in our thorny issues section.
