Donate to Endangered Rhino Conservation
ERC is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and 100% of your donation will go to support rhino conservation in action through ground operations, such as anti-poaching teams, K9 units, and veterinarian care.
Help Fund ERC's Veterinarians
We take a holistic approach to wildlife management to achieve good ecosystem health and responsible care of our wildlife, including our precious rhinos. We need an additional $20,000/year to fund veterinarian care.
Brave Canines for Conservation
Endangered Rhino Conservation’s K9 Team is comprised of some of the world’s finest anti-poaching dogs. We need to take care of them as well as we do the rhinos, which costs $3,000 annually for food and tick repellent tablets.
Anti-Poaching Unit Scouts - Our Biggest Need ($25,000)
ERC’s biggest need right now is to establish additional anti-poaching teams, consisting of 2 scouts and 1 dog in a satellite camp in a high-risk area of the reserve. This additional team costs approximately $25,000.
Vehicle Costs ($10,000)
We do a lot of driving, and the cost of fuel for our anti-poaching vehicles costs approximately $8,000 a year, while tire maintenance runs approximately $2,000 annually.
Wildlife Veterinary Costs ($7,000)
Veterinary costs associated with various (large) species across the reserve cost ERC approximately $6,500 annually, while veterinary costs associated with anti-poaching K9 unts cost approximately $500.
Anti-poaching Team Costs ($6,500)
Necessities for anti-poaching teams cost ERC approximately $4,000 a year, which includes uniforms and boots, $2,500 for anti-poaching kits including 2-way radios and solar inverters/batteries for anti-poaching camps.
K9 APU Dogs ($3,000)
In addition to the $500 we spend annually on K9 veterinary care, dog food and flea/tick medication is an annual $2,800 cost. They are worth every penny and necessary in the African bush!
Save the Chubby Unicorns!
Rhinos could be extinct in the wild within 10 years if they continue to decline at the current rate. We cannot save every individual in peril, but we can help to provide them a safe haven (in the wild) where they can procreate and raise calves to lead full lives.
We aim to grow our rhino population to become a viable genetic source for repopulation of white rhinos across Southern Africa.
Every donation – large or small – makes a difference!
