Despite tremendous efforts to stabilize the Rhino population using traditional nature conservation measures, the number of animals is still drastically decreasing each year.

We therefore believe that the Rhino can only be saved from extinction by following a radically different approach alongside traditional methods.

The RhineHorn Initiative aims to investigate the opportunity to make Rhino horn components (proteins) using modern biotechnology techniques.

We have formulated a hypothesis that might bring together Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western medical practice, opening possibilities to produce a highly valued ingredient without the need to kill this rare animal.

When we are able to successfully perform our research leading to the elucidation of the exact rhino horm composition, we will subsequently investigate the commercial potential of these findings, which should lead to the production of nature identical products in a legal and sustainable fashion.

Rhinehorn is currently in contact with a number of renowned institutions to obtain rhino horn samples to carry out the initial phase of our project.
