Saving Rhinos for future generations
In 2009, Rhino Africa formed a strategic partnership with Namibia's Save The Rhino Trust's
. This organisation is dedicated to protecting the highly endangered desert-adapted black rhino population who call the country’s Damaraland region home.
Started in 1982, Save The Rhino Trust's origins are rooted in the dramatic poaching epidemic that was running rampant in the Kunene region at that time. The rhinos that live there are the largest free-roaming population found in the wild today, making their protection and population growth all the more crucial.
Save The Rhino Trust provides consistent patrolling and monitoring across the 25,000km² landscape that these animals inhabit. The success of this project has been twofold. Many other species, in addition to the black rhino, have flourished due to this constant patrolling, and the Kunene region is now one of the leading examples and success stories of ecotourism in Southern Africa.
How Rhino Africa has helped:
Aided in funding the field trackers’ food rations which in turn ensures they can efficiently perform their patrol duties thereby protecting the rhino population
We’ve had a hand in helping SRT increase the black rhino population up to five times since the start of the 1980s
