Increase in Botswana's Rhino Population
Over the past few months there has been a lot of anecdotal evidence of increased poaching activity in many of Africa's wildlife areas, and it stands to reason: without safari vehicles out on game drive, poachers can more easily slip in undetected, and carry out their nefarious deeds.
In a first sign of hope, however, Rhinos Without Borders just announced that the population of 100 rhinos that they reintroduced into Botswana’ Okavango Delta prior to the pandemic has grown to 121. This takes into account new births as well as deaths (natural causes as well as poaching), and suggests that the Herculean anti-poaching efforts by various stakeholders are producing results better than most conservationists could have hoped for!
