Save the Rhino works with its partners on the ground to incentivise and secure support for rhino conservation by improving livelihoods and empowering local people, living under a variety of land tenure systems, through the promotion of benefits derived from wildlife resources.
This includes the support of black rhino-focused environmental education programmes, and grants that help fund community development work that is explicitly based upon the performance of the relevant rhino population.
