Saving the Northern White Rhino

Saving the Northern White Rhino

A poaching crisis has decimated wild rhino populations.

All rhinos are at risk of extinction, but the northern white rhino has suffered worst of all. With just 2 animals left on Earth, the northern white rhino is the most endangered animal on the planet.

The Nikita Kahn Rhino Rescue Center at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park is home to 6 rescued rhinos and our unique rhino surrogacy program. With your help, we can put the recovery of the northern white rhino on the fast track, utilizing cutting-edge science and resources like the San Diego Zoo Global Frozen Zoo®.

Time is running out for these gentle giants, but San Diego Zoo Global is leading the fight to save them from extinction, and your support makes it all possible.
