An important part of Save the Rhino's work is to encourage the exchange of information and expertise between rhino conservation practitioners, state agencies, NGOs etc. We do this by supporting the core activities and meetings of the African Rhino Specialist Group, occasional grants to Pachyderm and the Rhino Resource Center, and other cross-cutting projects, such as a Regional Canine Coordinator, or workshops to look at new technology for rhino monitoring and security.
To support the work of the IUCN SSC African Rhino Specialist Group, go to donate and select "Africa-African Rhino Specialist Group".
