International Rhino Foundation
The IRF was founded in 1993 in response to the global crisis in rhino conservation and provided strategically selective support for Black & White rhino conservation throughout Africa. The IRF is a collaborative conservation initiative providing technical, administrative and financial services and support for scientific research and intensive management for both captive and wild rhinos. The IRF is involved in both in situ and captive programs, which the IRF believes are both critical for the survival of the rhino.
The rhino is one of WWF flagship species, acting as an ambassador and highlighting the need for conserving the habitats in which they live. WWF works across the globe and aims to tackle the main threats facing rhino by strengthening protected areas in Africa, lobbying to halt the illegal timber trade, and stamping out the illegal trade in horn.
