PROTECTING RHINOS

The one thing that all who are involved in rhino conservation can agree on is that there is no sliver bullet, no single thing that if done will alone save the five remaining species, the survivors of some 55 million years of evolution. What’s more, protecting rhinos is beyond the abilities of any single person or organization, no matter how big and globally influencial they might be. Rhino conservation, if it is to be lasting and successful, is a collaborative effort across many disciplines. Land conservation, rescue and rehabilitation, translocation and range expansion, science and technology, anti-poaching efforts, demand reduction, youth education, local community engagement, media awareness, volunteering, and laws and legislation are all part of the mix.
