Kruger Park won't reveal rhino info
Johannesburg - The Kruger National Park (KNP) has decided it will no longer reveal information on its rhino movements in a bid to curb poaching, according to a report on Wednesday.
Spokesperson Laura Mukwevho told Beeld newspaper that all camp managers had been ordered to remove information on maps and notice boards about rhino movements.
In the past the park had kept visitors up to date on where rhino had last been spotted. But Mukwevho said another six rhino carcasses were found last week in the southern part of the park.
A total of 229 rhino had been poached in the park this year.
SA National Parks on Tuesday said a total of 405 rhino had been poached this year, an increase of 21.6% from last year.
