There is a true crisis facing the rhino.
- In the early 20th century there were 500,000 rhinos living in the wild
- By 1970, that number fell to 70,000
- Today, there are just 29,000 rhinos living in the wild
That means that over the past century, the world’s wild rhino population has declined by 94%.

Join Ed Warner and Sand County Foundation to contribute to conservation efforts in America and Africa.
Sand County Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to working with private landholders across North America on voluntary land management practices that benefit the environment. Sand County Foundation was founded nearly fifty years ago to protect the land surrounding renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold’s shack from development. Rather than depending on public acquisition, our protection strategy was rooted in private action inspired by Leopold’s Land Ethic, using responsible, voluntary means.
The International Rhino Foundation is dedicated to the survival of the world’s rhino species through conservation and research. At the heart of IRF’s vision is the belief that these magnificent species should endure for future generations, and that protecting rhinos ensures that many other species that share their habitat also survive, including people.

Our mission is advanced through sound science, achieved through empowering people, realized through stewardship and sustained through partnerships.
