Why protect the Indian Rhino

For years, the Greater One Horned Rhinoceros or Indian rhino has been carelessly slaughtered for its horn, and such poaching activity is the primary reason for its declining population, along with continuous habitat loss. The Indian rhino has been labelled as a vulnerable species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Today, the Indian rhino has been wiped out from most parts of the world, leaving a total population of just 3500 individuals, with 82% of them living in India.

What threatens the Indian rhino

- Poaching for their horns
- Habitat loss
- Diseases

How WWF-India is helping

Our teams work tirelessly to save this tough and majestic being and ensure that rhinos thrive across four states in India: Assam, West Bengal, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

- Translocations: Since most Indian rhinos now live in Kaziranga, we move rhinos back to some parts of their historical ranges so they can start new breeding populations and increase their number.
- Indian Rhino Vision 2020 in Assam: we work with the Government of Assam and other partners to implement the Indian Rhino Vision 2020 to increase the population of rhinos in India from about 2500, currently, to 3000.

Latest Win 
Your support has made it possible for us to relocate 4 Rhinos from one range of the Dudhwa National Park in Uttar Pradesh to another to prevent inbreeding, depression, diseases & mass mortality. The translocated Rhinos are doing well and will soon start a breeding population in their new home.
