The 2014 Rhino Conservation Calendar is on SALE NOW! The calendar is the IRKA’s endeavor as an organization to actively participate in an in-situ rhino conservation project through the IRF. The IRKA has produced the Rhino Conservation Calendar for two years now and has raised close to $20,000, all of which went directly to rhino conservation projects.
The sale of the 2014 Rhino Conservation Calendar will assist the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary (SRS) on Sumatra, a captive breeding program for the species. At the Sumatran Rhino Crisis Summit, which occurred March 2013 in Singapore, the governments of Indonesia and Malaysia agreed for the first time to collaborate on saving the Critically Endangered Sumatran rhino, the smallest and last form of the two-horned rhino in Asia that has lived on the planet for 20 million years. The Sumatran rhinos were once widespread throughout Southeast Asia, occurring from the foothills of the Himalayas southward to the extreme southern tip of Sumatra. However, hunting for horn and other body parts, in combination with the loss of tropical forest habitat, has resulted in the disappearance of Sumatran rhinos from at least four countries. The last of the wild populations of the Sumatran rhino, now amount to fewer than 100 rhinos in total. They survive on the Indonesian island of Sumatra and in Sabah, Malaysia on the northern part of the island of Borneo.
Experts who gathered at the Summit proposed a two-year emergency action plan as an immediate follow-up to the event. The funds raised from the sale of the 2014 Rhino Conservation Calendar will go towards the resources needed to improve rhino surveys, security and monitoring of the Sumatran rhinos.
To celebrate World Rhino Day, September 22nd, the Rhino Conservation Calendars will be on sale for a special price of $22 each (normally $26 each). We SOLD OUT in 3 months- so order your copy TODAY! Order on the IRKA website
