Lewa-Borana Conservancy Announces Record Rhino Births
Some good news from Kenya regarding one of Africa's most endangered species - the Lewa Conservation and Research Department announced a record six rhino births in the last quarter of 2020, bringing the total rhino population on the Lewa-Borana Conservancy to 214 (113 black rhinos and 101 white rhinos). Lewa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site by virtue of its community-based conservation efforts to protect critical migratory routes and landscape, as well as endangered species such as rhinos and Grevy's zebra.
The new baby rhinos have not yet been named, and the research department anticipates that this will be done via their Adopt-a-Rhino program. By adopting a rhino, "parents" have the privilege of naming the rhino, and will then receive regular updates on its progress, and be offered the opportunity to participate in conservation efforts.
