Rhino Conservation Botswana: Media Release: Rhino poaching in Botswana 

Publication Year:

Despite significant anti-poaching efforts, the rhino poaching onslaught continues unabated in Botswana with 47 rhinos lost to poachers over the last 12 months. This has devastated Botswana’s rhino populations and significantly set back the work of Rhino Conservation Botswana. For the past two decades we have worked with the Government of Botswana and private sector partners to bring rhinos from high poaching areas in South Africa and Zimbabwe into Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Here we have been closely monitoring the rhinos, enabling their populations to grow at one of the highest rates ever achieved, adding to the global population of these highly endangered animals.
