Malawi receives 17 black rhinos from South Africa via SABCNewsOnline

Peter Fearnhead, Chief Executive of African Parks, a private conservation trust that runs game reserves in Malawi, said the relocation also reflected local efforts to keep rhinos and other wild animals safe.“Extensive measures to protect these animals include aerial surveillance, daily ranger patrols, and the integration of the most advanced technology to enable live-time tracking,” Fearnhead said.

The first translocation of two rhinos from South Africa’s Kruger National Park took place in 1992. The new transfer was organised by wildlife departments in the two countries and WWF South Africa. Britain’s Prince Harry has been involved in conservation efforts at Liwonde, which lies in Eastern Southern Malawi on the banks of the Shire river.
