Black rhino project doing wonders for community

2008-06-22 00:00

The black rhino range expansion project launched last November, which is a partnership between the Gumbi royal family and its community, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife (EKZNW) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), has offered the community in the Pongola area north of the province a new lease on life.

“We will be releasing eight white rhinos, 125 inyalas, 15 kudus, 100 impalas, 15 wildebeests, six giraffes and 20 zebras to the Somkhanda Game Reserve. This was approved by the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife board. This will make the game reserve the first in the country to stock both black and white rhinos,” said Keswa. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
