A large number of the animals at Rolling Hills Zoo are endangered in the wild. In fact, many of them, such as Amur leopards, Sumatran orangutans, and Indian rhinos, have wild populations that are on the verge of extinction.

Below you'll find a list of conservation groups that RHZ is proud to help out throughout the year, as well as on special event or featured animal months.


International Rhino Foundation

The International Rhino Foundation is a Texas-based charity focused on the conservation of the five species of rhinoceros: the White Rhinoceros and Black Rhinoceros in Africa; the Indian Rhinoceros, Javan Rhinoceros and Sumatran Rhinoceros in Asia.
