Doing Good in Botswana: Relocating Rhino to Botswana – Initiatives Underway

Botswana Tourism Organization Consumer eNewsletter

Last year, over 1,000 rhino were killed in South Africa; and the rate of poaching now exceeds the ability of rhino to replenish the species’ numbers. Concerned citizens, companies, and the governments of Botswana and South Africa are stepping up efforts to secure the survival of the species. 

This month we highlight two current rhino translocation initiatives: a partnership between Great Plains Conservation and &Beyond; and Wilderness Safaris’ partnership with the Botswana Department of Wildlife and National Parks.

Great Plains Conservation and &Beyond have joined forces to relocate 100 rhino in 2015 from South Africa into Botswana, a country known for its aggressive anti-poaching policies and practices, where the rhino will have a better chance of survival. Their fundraising campaigns, Zeros for Rhinos, and Rhinos Without Borders, are now underway to secure the funding needed to ensure this translocation initiative is a success.

Wilderness Safaris is also engaged in translocating endangered black rhino to Botswana. The company is delighted to announce the successful capture of a small founder population of critically endangered black rhino in a joint collaboration with the Botswana government. The rhino are destined for a safe haven in Botswana. This follows the successful capture and release of a group of black rhino in May and is part of an ongoing conservation project to establish a core population in Botswana of this threatened species.
