Save the Rhino International (SRI) works to conserve viable populations of critically endangered rhinos in Africa and Asia. It recognizes that the future of wildlife is inextricably linked to the communities that share its habitat. By funding field projects and through education, its goal is to deliver material, long-lasting and widespread benefits to rhinos and other endangered species, ecosystems and to the people living in these areas. In the financial year 2009-10, SRI raised US $1.025 million.

US Fish & Wildlife Service

In 1994, the U.S. Congress established the Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Fund. The funding from this project is allocated between the different species of rhino and tiger, thereby allowing the highly imperiled two African and three Asian rhinoceros species to receive support for critical conservation efforts.

The Beit Trust

The Trust was initially set up in 1906 by the will of Alfred Beit, for the benefit of the people of Zambia and Zimbabwe. In 1954 the Trust was reconstituted by an Act of Parliament in the United Kingdom as an incorporated charity and, with the advent of Federation, the country of Malawi was included in the "Specified Area" as a beneficiary. Under Section 3 of The Act, The Beit Trust is an incorporated body. The Trust does not fundraise and seeks to continue the philanthropic work desired by the donor through the careful stewardship and maintenance in perpetuity of its existing resources.
