Our top priority strategy is to protect and increase rhino numbers and population distribution in African and Asian range states: Save the Rhino currently supports field programmes in Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, South Africa and Indonesia.
SRI’s effort is focused on: Key 1 & Key 2 Critically Endangered rhino populations; those with the capacity to become Key 2 within the next five years; those with interesting genetic diversity; and those with the potential for developing the relevant country’s national rhino strategy.
