The WWF-SA Black Rhino Range Expansion Project (BRREP) has just completed its 12th successful black rhino move, including translocating its 200th rhino, as part of an ongoing initiative to increase the growth rate of this critically endangered species.
Now in its 16th year, this project actively seeks out new areas to establish populations of black rhinos where they have space to breed and increase their numbers.
For the latest move, BRREP joined hands with private landowners, a community and the provincial government in the Eastern Cape, to create a 14 000 hectare reserve. All of them are now the joint custodians of the group of black rhinos.
