The RRC is a small registered charity. There are two part-time workers, both working from home. We are very grateful to our sponsors because their contributions allow us to provide our service to rhino enthusiasts around the globe.

Donations are very welcome and are essential to keep our work going.


We know that everybody working on rhinos for conservation, research, education or media coverage saves a great deal of time and effort by using the information on the RRC. We update our website almost daily and give current up-to-date coverage of everything written about any of the rhino species worldwide. Please help us to continue our work.

Your contribution will be solely used for the purposes of maintaining the RRC website. Just 10% is taken for an administrative charge by third parties. Your assistance counts and is essential to rhino conservation and research.

For donations we use an external website that can handle several modes of money transfer.

We are always happy to receive information or copies of any work done on the rhinoceros.

Publisher and Authors: keep us up to date with your publications. As long as the rhinoceros is mentioned, nothing is too trivial. If you happen to have items not listed in the Bibliography, or original photographs, prints, books, we would be happy to hear from you.


The Rhino Resource Center is in the process of updating its website. The new version will include GALLERIES of rhinoceros pictures. It provides an opportunity to show at least one photograph of every rhinoceros kept in captivity, in the past and at present. It also gives an opportunity to publish any good photos of all rhino species when locality and date are known, with acknowledgement to the photographer.

Hence I would like to invite you to send us images of all individual rhinos in zoos or parks or in the wild, preferably as JPEG or as GIF. It will be assumed that all photos received can be posted on the web without infringing any copyright (but arrangements can be made).

The pictures are most useful if you can add the following data:

Locality - Species – Specimen - date of photo - photographer

All entries will be gratefully received.
