Each year, the FHM student council chooses a charity to support. Inspired by a Free Horizon 5th grader, this year the council selected the World Wildlife Foundation and their rhino conservation efforts. The Free Horizon community can help make a difference by donating to this important cause. The Student Council created a webpage that is accessed through https://bit.ly/2CVbZZ3 to make a donation at any amount (even $2 makes a difference). Big changes start with small steps! ***Donation receipt must be attached to registration form for discount.***  

More about rhinos and what the WWF is doing to save them


POACHING

Poaching, driven by consumer demand for rhino horn primarily in Asia, poses the biggest threat to rhinos. Rhino poaching levels hit record highs in 2015, with poachers slaughtering at least 1,300 rhinos in Africa.


HABITAT LOSS

As economic development, logging, and agriculture degrade and destroy wildlife habitats, rhino populations are declining. Those remaining rhinos live in fragmented, isolated areas and are prone to inbreeding, as healthy genetic mixing is more difficult among smaller groups. Disease can also spread rapidly through these highly-concentrated populations. The increase in human populations also puts more pressure on rhino habitats as well, shrinking the living space for rhinos and increasing the likelihood of contact with humans—often with fatal results.


WWF ACTION

WWF secures and protects rhino populations, and establishes new populations through translocations—the process of moving rhinos from parks with significant populations to others that historically held rhinos but currently do not. They help with community-based conservation approaches for people living in and around important rhino habitats.

They work to combat poaching by implementing innovative technology  and building the capacity of rangers on the ground. They also tackle illegal trade of—and demand for—rhino horn through advocacy and strengthening of local and international law enforcement to bring trafficking perpetrators to justice.
