News from Rhino Conservation Botswana – First Black Rhino Birth

Botswana Tourism Organization Consumer eNewsletter

Since the start of the Botswana wild rhino project in 2001, there has been a small but extremely dedicated group of people involved in monitoring the rhino populations of northern Botswana. Wilderness Safaris, in a partnership with the Botswana Department of Wildlife and National Parks, continue to make strides in stepping up their efforts to secure the survival of the rhino. As we shared this past summer, the company was delighted to announce the successful capture of a small founder population of critically endangered black rhino. However, monitoring black rhinos is not a job for the faint of heart. These magnificent animals are browsers by nature and are particularly fond of hanging out in thickets that sometimes appear impenetrable, and are certainly not a very natural habitat for humans on foot. It was in one of these thickets that one dedicated rhino monitoring officer and his three Botswana Defense Force companions ventured into in search of a large female black rhino who was known to have a liking for the leaves of the guarri bushes which grew in dense clusters in that area.

Normally, they would have left her alone to get on with her life except for the fact that they knew she was heavily pregnant. With great tracking skills, they managed to locate her right in the very heart of this difficult bush, and to their great joy and excitement, saw that she indeed had a very small calf with her, which they estimated to be no more than a few days old! This newborn marks the first birth to the recent black rhino that have moved to Botswana. We look forward to learning more about this baby calf in the months to come.
