Blue Rhino and the International Rhino Foundation (IRF), a global wildlife conservation organization, partnered to raise awareness of rhino conservation efforts around the world.

IRF was founded in 1989 and operates on-the-ground programs where rhinos reside in Africa and Asia, supporting viable rhino populations and their surrounding communities.

As part of the initiative, Blue Rhino, a subsidiary of Ferrellgas, says it will draw attention to IRF causes and encourage individuals to support its efforts through both marketing campaigns and on tanks sold at retail exchange locations across the country.

“The name ‘Blue Rhino’ was inspired during a photo safari in Africa more than 25 years ago,” says Tamria Zertuche, COO of Ferrellgas. “We have long recognized the plight of these tough and majestic animals, and we are thrilled to join forces with IRF to help protect the world’s rhino population.”

Nina Fascione, executive director of IRF, says she looks forward to seeing what the two organizations can accomplish together.

“We are excited to partner with Blue Rhino to engage more people in the effort to save rhinos in the wild,” Fascione says. “Working together, we can showcase rhino conservation in a fun, yet impactful way.”
