IRF is dedicated to ensuring the survival of rhinos through strategic partnerships, targeted protection, and scientifically sound interventions. Founded in response to intense poaching of Zimbabwe’s black rhinos in the early 1990s, IRF’s commitment helped to reduce the threat and stabilize the population. To this day, IRF-supported conservation programs in Zimbabwe have secured 90% of the country’s rhinos. In five countries across two continents, IRF supports viable populations of the five remaining rhino species and the communities that coexist with them. Throughout its 29-year history, IRF also has supported applied and basic rhino research. IRF is governed by a 15-person Board of Directors, who meet four times per year.
