Saving the Northern White Rhino

Support the northern white rhino recovery programme

The BioRescue project is part of a large multi-national partnership dedicated to saving the northern white rhinos from extinction. Devoted organisations and people in many countries are contributing their share to protect these magnificent animals and to make the impossible possible: May it be through personal care for the animals, through building and strengthening the protective framework or by pushing the limits of science to develop new methods of assisted reproduction and stem cell associated techniques.

Please vist the partners' and collaborators' website to see how you can support their share of work. The BioRescue project is contributing scientific and veterinary expertise to the rescue mission. The project is partially funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), but there is always demand for additional donations for international consortium partners.

The BioRescue consortium is deeply grateful for any donation to support its work. Please visit the following website to donate:
