Andatu is a 1 year old Sumatran Rhino. He is one of 100 of his kind left in the world, a distant relative to the extinct Woolly Rhino, yet his species is on a slippery slope towards extinction too.
Andatu's forest home is being cleared, to make way for loggers and plantations. With a shrinking habitat there is nowhere to go and no friends to make. That is if he hasn't already been killed for his horn, a tiny stub on the end of his nose, that some humans believe has the power to cure cancer and other ailments. It doesn't.
What do we do?
We direct vital funds into on the ground projects throughout Sumatran Rhino habitat, ensuring that what habitat remains is preserved not only for rhinos, but countless other species whose homes are threatened. We support Rhino Protection Units, who work around the clock to ensure poachers don't threaten the rhinos; apprehending illegal intruders and bringing them to justice. We educate the local communities about the importance of protecting the rhinos, and offer ways of protecting their habitat so they can improve their livelihoods as well.
We also raise awareness; so that people like you, know that animals like Andatu need your help too.
