Rhinos 9 - Poachers 0

Save the Rhino Trust reports at the Namibia Landscape meeting on Combatting Wildlife Crime' tells us more precisely what to expect

At the USAID funded Combatting Wildlife Crime ‘Namibian Landscape’ meeting on 9 October, Simson Uri-Khob, the Director of Save the Rhino Trust, could point to nine rhino calves born in the last six months, and no rhinos lost to poachers in the Erongo-Kunene conservancies area. USAID is funding five Southern African landscapes, one of which, the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA), includes Namibia’s north-east, and another, Kunene, where the main focus is combatting wildlife crime syndicates that target rhino.
