Imagine this at full speed 55km/h….that would send up a serious dust cloud. A huge presence of power and strength yet, a grass eater more like a cow than a beast, the quintessential contradiction and the classic gentle Giant. Large-scale poaching saw black rhino populations decline from around 70,000 individuals in 1970 to just 2,410 in 1995 – that’s a dramatic decline of 96% over 20 years. Thanks to the persistent efforts of conservation programmes across Africa, black rhino numbers have risen since then to a current population of between 5,366 and 5,627 individuals. Importantly, their geographic range has also increased, with successful reintroduction programmes repopulating areas that had previously seen native black rhinos.
