Myrtle Beach Marathon!
For the second year in a row, the Rare Species Fund has partnered with  the Myrtle Beach Marathon. This partnership allows runners to experience a starting line with a 9,000 pound elephant and a finish line filled with tiger cubs and orangutans!  
Taking place on Valentine's Day weekend, these few days every year transform the streets of Myrtle Beach into a jungle scene that provides the backdrop to an unforgettable experience. February 13 - 15, 2014 will be a weekend filled with wild animal encounters and opportunities to connect with rare species up-close and eye-to-eye. Marathon runners are a perfect group to support this cause due to their love of the outdoors and desire to help the endangered and rare species throughout the world.

The Rare Species Fund Goes To Washington...
The Rare Species Fund traveled to Washington D.C. recently to talk to politicians about wildlife conservation and the importance of wildlife ambassadors in educating the public. The congressional briefing was held in the hearing room of the Committee on Natural Resources within the U.S. Capitol complex. Proving to be one of the most successful meetings to date,  several hundred federal employees joined the Rare Species Fund for this event.



Pictured above, Dr. Bhagavan Antle and Moksha Bybee of the Rare Species Fund talk to politicians in the U.S. Capitol building's sub-committee room on Natural Resources. "Doc" Antle spoke about the plight of endangered species.


Below, Dr. Antle discusses wildlife conservation and the importance of wildlife ambassadors with Congressman Don Young and Congresswoman Dina Titus. Doc is photographed here holding a tiger cub during the specially convened congressional briefing.



The Rare Species Fund (RSF) also participated in the annual International Conservation Caucus Foundation Gala on the National Mall. The animal ambassadors of RSF met with political ambassadors from around the world. The event was attended by many high-ranking government officials, including the President of Tanzania. Robert Johnson is pictured below with members of the Tanzanian parliament at the Gala. 

Robert Johnson brought Ahren, an African fish eagle, with him as a wildlife ambassador for the International Conservation Caucus Foundation (ICCF) Gala in Washington D.C. The ICCF is perhaps the world's most influential conservation organization with membership comprised of Kings, Queens, Presidents, Prime Ministers and policy makers from around the world.


The topic of discussion at the ICCF Gala was the need for further steps in African wildlife conservation. For example, the poaching of rhinos has escalated to historic proportions. This influential conservation organization is reaching out to industry leaders, various non-governmental organizations, and other conservation groups to assist in saving wildlife throughout Africa. The ICCF has the distinction of being the only organization that includes nearly one third of all Congressmen and Congresswomen as members.     



In the early 1900's, over 500,000 rhinos lived across the continents of Africa and Asia. Today, this number has fallen to just 29,000 rhinos living in the wild. Despite these heartbreaking statistics and the continuing threat of poaching, rhinoceros population numbers are slowly increasing due to the high-level discussions and increased conservation efforts by organizations like the International Conservation Caucus Foundation.
