Some good news….Black Rhino population increase

We have a long way to go, but we’re getting there…thanks to hugely dedicated organisations such as Rhino Conservation Botswana…

Due to hunting and poaching, black rhino numbers dropped dramatically from several hundred thousand in the early 20th century to about 3,000 individuals in the 1990s.

Since then, the species has made a comeback thanks to persistent conservation efforts across Africa.  However, unfortunately recent increases in poaching have slowed this population growth.

The black rhino is still considered critically endangered.  A lot of work remains to bring their number up to even a fraction of what it once was, and to ensure that it stays there.
