Black rhinos are in big trouble, as they face an escalating poaching crisis to feed black market demand for their horns.  But the Minnesota Zoo, Save the Rhino Trust, and other partners are working together in Namibia to save this critically endangered species.  Through Labor Day (September 5th), please consider making a donation to support this important work when you enter the Zoo!  You also can donate online.

Check out our blogs from the field to learn what it’s like to set out in the early morning with a group of Rhino Rangers to find fresh rhino tracks.  The Zoo’s Communications Manager, Josh Le, has been in Namibia with our Conservation Biologist, Jeff Muntifering, to help further the Zoo’s mission of connecting people, animals, and the natural world to save wildlife.  You can read updates from Josh’s trip so far and check back for more!
