The International Rhino Keeper Association (IRKA) and the International Rhino Foundation (IRF) have produced a gorgeous 2013 Rhino Conservation Calendar, featuring photos submitted by rhino supporters from around the world.

Update: CALENDARS ARE SOLD OUT! Thank you for supporting Sumatran rhino conservation.

Sale proceeds from the 2013 Rhino Conservation Calendar will assist the Rhino Foundation of Indonesia (Yayasan Badak Indonesia or YABI). YABI oversees the management of the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary (SRS), a captive breeding program on the island of Sumatra.

New hope for the survival of Sumatran rhinos arrived at the Sanctuary on June 23rd, 2012, with the birth of Andatu. With fewer than 200 Sumatran rhinos surviving in Indonesia and Malaysia, this monumental event is one of the most significant advances in the ex situ conservation effort for this critically endangered species.

The calendars are $26 each (including shipping) with all proceeds going towards covering the core costs of the SRS:

  • Staff salaries
  • Vehicle maintenance
  • Veterinary supplies
  • Non-browse nutritional supplements
  • Facility maintenance
