Africa’s biggest Black Rhino relocation
The population growth of both black and white Rhino’s is gradually increasing within the last couple of years. A grand total of 2.5 million has been spent on the relocation of Rhinos in the months of May 2014 – June 2015 alone! The good news is that each year we are expecting a 6-8% growth rate in the Black Rhino population.
