Botswana Regarded as ‘Safe Haven’ for Rhino Groundbreaking Conservation Project

In the first ever private game reserve donation of rhino, &Beyond has earmarked six white rhino to be translocated from &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa to Botswana’s Okavango Delta.

Wildlife Sightings

The Okavango Delta has proven to be a successful rhino relocation habitat and Botswana has a strong security and monitoring framework in place whereby the government helps to protect the species. “It’s the ideal opportunity for us to move our eggs out of one basket,” explains Carlisle. “The project has the full support of the Botswana Rhino Management Committee and we are thrilled to be driving such a vital initiative for rhino conservation in partnership with Motorite.”

After years of negotiation and planning, the translocation process will begin in February 2013. From October 2012, game scouts from Botswana will travel to &Beyond Phinda to undergo intensive tracking and monitoring training, as they are not familiar with white rhino behavior in the southern part of the Delta. Capture and release bomas will be built in South Africa and Botswana respectively, permits obtained and various conservation initiatives set in place to ensure that the six carefully selected rhino arrive at their destination safely.

Wildlife Sightings

&Beyond has made a significant contribution to the protection of rhino over the past 20 years. This project, with the final release of the six rhino scheduled to take place in April 2013, not only highlights the company’s commitment to its core ethic of Care of the Land, Care of the Wildlife and Care of the People, but the value and efforts of Botswana’s government as well.
