Z A R AFA CAM P BOTSWANA

Saving Endangered Species: Rhinos Without Borders Zarafa’s owner, Great Plains Conservation, has embarked on an ambitious project to save black rhinos that are critically endangered due to the dramatic increase in poaching for rhino horn over the last decade. A partnership with several safari companies, the Rhinos Without Borders project seeks to relocate no fewer than 100 rhinos from neighboring countries to safe havens in Botswana—a country with a strong conservation record and commitment to protecting wildlife. Further supported by a robust anti-poaching monitoring and enforcement program, the Rhinos Without Borders project will help secure genetic diversity for rhinos by drawing together animals from different populations. To date, the project has successfully relocated 40 rhinos to Botswana, and the first births of baby rhinos from that group have already been documented.
