The Minnesota Zoo is a key player in Desert Black Rhino conservation in Namibia, even though we do not have rhinos on site. Your animal sponsorship gift supports the Minnesota Zoo as well as conservation projects around the world.
Only about 4,000 black rhino remain in the wild, and approximately 150 of those are a desert-adapted subspecies living in northwestern Namibia, where a full-time Minnesota Zoo employee is working with a local conservation organization called Save the Rhino Trust.
Together, we aim to expand the Desert Black Rhinos’ range and ensure key wilderness areas are protected and sustained through responsible tourism that benefits local communities. After identifying the most promising areas to restore black rhinos, the project will lead training programs on how to conduct responsible rhino tourism.
