Rhino Conservation Botswana
Gives Wild Rhinos a Fighting Chance

Across Africa, rhinos are fighting for survival. Botswana could be their last haven and final hope. Rhino Conservation Botswana (RCB) is working to increase and protect populations of black and white rhinos in Botswana. On behalf of the Botswana government, we are keeping these precious animals safe for future generations. With your support, we can help rhinos to beat extinction.

We work tirelessly to fight against the extinction of wild African rhinos
Every donation – large or small – goes directly to support our efforts to protect black and white rhinos in the wild in Botswana, where they can raise calves and lead full and natural lives.
