Rhinos Without Borders

Increasing at an alarming rate, poaching is at an all-time high in Africa. The illegal trade in rhino horn has seen the number of these magnificent creatures poached throughout Africa rise significantly in recent years. Since 2008, 6,102 rhinos have been poached in South Africa. With a rhino killed every eight hours, more of these African icons are now being lost to poachers every year, than are being born.

andBeyond and Africa Foundation believe that translocations are fundamental to securing the ongoing survival of this endangered species. In 2013 andBeyond carried out the first ever private game reserve donation of rhino to another country when it translocated six white rhino from andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa to Botswana’s Okavango Delta, which has been proven as a safe and successful rhino translocation habitat.

Following the success of this project, andBeyond has partnered with Great Plains Conservation to translocate a further hundred rhino from South Africa to Botswana in an initiative designed to help counter the scourge of poaching and preserve this African icon for future generations. Enough funds were raised, and the first two batches of rhino were successfully translocated to a safe haven in Botswana. To date, 37 rhinos have already been moved with plans in place to relocated a further 30 soon.

Rhinos Without Borders continues to raise funds to allow for the safe movement of ever more rhino.

40% of the funds raised cover the cost of the actual capture, transport, holding bomas, quarantine and release of the rhino. The project invests 30% of the funds on the continued conservation, protection and monitoring of the source population, the remaining 30% will be invested in anti-poaching and security infrastructure in Botswana.

A critical component of this initiative is the close relationship we enjoy with communities who are our eyes and ears on the ground and we aim to make the citizens of Botswana our partners in the protection of their natural resource.
