Protect our endangered species by donating to the Tanganyika Wildlife Foundation!
Intending to bring awareness to the community about endangered species, Tanganyika Wildlife Park officially opened its doors in August 2008. Jim and Sherri Fouts, the owners of the Tanganyika Wildlife Foundation, believe people can develop a connection with our endangered species and help them survive through interactive experiences and educational programs.
Wildlife trafficking has brought multiple species to extinction and caused irrevocable damage to nature. Poaching rhinos for the illegal trade of their horns has become one of the most dangerous threats to African rhinos. Rangers work hard to maintain the safety of these rhinos, even as their families face constant pressure and threats from poachers.
Cinco de Rhino is an annual event hosted by the International Rhino Foundation and zoos around the country to raise critical funds for, and awareness of, rhino conservation efforts in Africa and Asia. Thank you to everyone who celebrated Cinco de Rhino with us! We are proud to support the efforts of the International Rhino Foundation to conserve all five species of rhino.
With your support, we raised $2,250 for IRF. We value the efforts of rangers who work at protecting rhinos and believe functional communications can enhance their response capability. As such, Tanganyika Wildlife Foundation has decided to donate the funds to:
- Supporting two years of uncapped data transmission to a ranger station
- Installing horn implants to track the illegal trade of rhino horn
The team at Tanganyika Wildlife Foundation spends Tuesday and Thursday afternoons walking for rhinos. IRF dares you to walk or run 30 miles from May 19 to August 31, 2021, as part of our 30-mile virtual Rhino Protection Unit (RPU) Challenge.
The Tanganyika Wildlife Foundation
Tanganyika Wildlife Foundation supports wildlife conservation by raising money through events and educating the masses about rare species nearing extinction. Previously, we’ve even had Ty Herndon (2008) and Kenny Loggins (2009) feature in an event called “Rockin’ for Rhinos” to raise money for our Indian Rhinos.
Donations to Tanganyika Wildlife Foundation remain tax-deductible under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code.
