The BBC is well-known for their outstanding and award-winning documentaries depicting our planet, its environment and man's relation to nature.

Support the Northern White Rhino rescue mission

The BioRescue project is contributing scientific and veterinary expertise to the Northern White Rhino rescue mission. However, progress in research alone is not enough to prevent the extinction of these charismatic and important creatures. Well-coordinated cooperation of many committed partners in politics, nature conservation, economy and civil society is needed to give them a future. With your help the rescue mission can be a success!
