A huge thank you and congratulations to each and every member of the incredible 2017 Save the Rhino London Marathon team!

The sun shone on our 54 rhino heroes as we celebrated their success. We’d also like to give a rhino-sized thank you to 14 very special Rhino Runners, who conquered the 26.2 miles wearing our iconic rhino costumes – a truly fantastic achievement. Vinny O’Neill was our fastest costume-clad Runner, coming in at a speedy 04:40:26. So far, our Rhino Team have raised a magnificent £101,000. Can you show the love and help them reach their target of £120,000?

Show our rhinos some love!

Growing the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary

There are just 100 Sumatran rhinos on Earth, making them possibly the most endangered species on our planet. The Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary is boosting the population with a captive breeding programme.

10 Sumatran rhinos live in the Sanctuary, within heavily protected natural habitat in Indonesia. In four years two new calves have been born. Now, thanks to your help, the Sanctuary is doubling in size.
