A Rhino in Crisis
In the early 1800’s there were estimated to be over a million White and Black rhinos in Africa. By the early 1950’s there were less than 450 white rhinos left, and they were all located in the Umfolozi Game Reserve in the now Kwazulu Natal province of South Africa, and being threatened by disease (Anthrax) . Thanks to Dr Ian Player, the Natal Parks Board (now Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife) agreed to the principle of “sustainable use” and started selling and moving rhino all over the country for hunting purposes.
