Episode 43: Protecting Asia's Rhinos with Markus Hofmeyr, Director of the Rhino Recovery Fund

Transcript

No transcript...

On this episode of The Think Wildlife Podcast, I interview Markus Hofmeyr, who is the Director of the Rhino Recovery Fund (RRF). Launched in 2020 by the Wildlife Conservation Network, the RRF aims to protect rhinos from wildlife crime while also restoring their landscapes. The RRF is working towards the conservation of all five species of rhinos across Africa and Asia, aiming to tackle the illegal rhino horn trade and habitat loss. Furthermore, RRF invests in projects that not only benefit local communities but also involve them in rhino conservation.

In this episode, Markus and I cover the great work that the RRF supports across both continents. We also discuss in detail the miraculous recovery of the Greater One-Horned Rhino and the way forward for their conservation. Additionally, we talk about the conservation of the Javan, Sumatran and Black Rhino.
