Poaching wars in the 1970s and 1980s wiped out 98% of Africa's black rhino population and the species faced extinction. Today, thanks to a number of conservation projects in the region, numbers are on the increase, but there is still much work to be done if the black rhino is to survive in the wild.


The project aims to tackle the problem with a series of measures both to protect and conserve the rhino.
