to the web site for the International Rhino Keeper Association.
This association of rhino keepers is dedicated to the sharing
of knowledge in relation to the five species of rhinoceros.
Information experienced through captive management and through
study in the field are both valued as critical to the rhinoceros
survival. To this end the IRKA conducts the Rhino Keeper Workshop
every two years to learn and discuss the most up-to-date information
in the fields of rhino biology, management, nutrition and
training. This is a membership based organization that desires
to both serve its members to become the best care takers and
managers of the rhinos in their care as well as depend on
them to participate in the association’s interests and
The International Rhino
Keeper Association (IRKA) promotes professional collaboration,
development and practices to advance rhinoceros conservation
