Sumatran Rhinos, once with a population size of ~1,000 in the 1980s, are now estimated to have only 80 individuals remaining in the wild due to increasing human pressures. A successful captive breeding program led by the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary remains one of the last hopes to mitigate against the expected extinction of this species. We are inspired to utilize growth hacking and other online fundraising best practices to support this cause before it's too late.

What it does

Rhino Quizzes aim to acquire, engage and recruit new online donors to support the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary's captive breeding program.

How we built it

We used several languages and resources to develop the quiz. We also learned about Sumatran Rhinos to identify potential questions that can be used in quizzes most likely to excite new users.

Challenges we ran into

Programming, integrating with other large websites to attract users

Accomplishments that we're proud of

A working prototype that can collect data

What we learned

Programming in a variety of languages, interesting facts on Sumatran Rhinos, the importance of captive breeding programs

What's next for Rhino Quiz

Integration with large websites to attract users
