image for Rhino population gets a new sanctuary in Mozambique

The Peace Parks Foundation began this initiative more than six years ago, and last month successfully relocated 19 white rhinos from South Africa to adjoining Mozambique, in collaboration with both governments.

The population of wild rhinos has dropped more than 60 percent since 1970, due to factors such as poaching and habitat loss.

The South African government reported that more than 400 rhinos were poached in 2021 across the country, both on government reservations and private property.

Of the two species of rhino that live in Africa, white rhinos have a conservation status of “near threatened” while black rhinos are “critically endangered," according to World Wildlife Fund.

With the arrival of rhinos, the project has created the first “big five” national park in Mozambique, meaning that the park has lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalos, the press release states.

Rhinos have also been extinct from Mozambique for 40 years.

Over the next few years project managers say they hope to bring an additional 40 rhinos to the sanctuary. »
