Over four years after they became extinct in your area, rhinocerouses are once more wandering the wilds of Mozambique.
The Peace Parks Structure (PPF) has actually relocated black and white rhinos from South Africa to Mozambique’s Zinave National Park, which has over 400,000 hectares and more than 2,300 other reintroduced animals.
This effort is a part of a campaign to rescue the endangered types by moving them to safe havens where they have a possibility to increase their population.
” Rhinocerouses are very important to the community, which is just one of the reasons why we’re moving them all this distance and doing all this initiative to obtain them there,” Kester Vickery, a conservationist that is supervising the rhinocerous translocation informed Reuters.
PPF is hoping to move over 40 rhinocerouses in the next two years to Mozambique. The project supervisor, Anthony Alexander, said that the team has already brought in specific predators and lots of elephants to the park and that it was now rhinocerouses’ turn.
“It’s very amazing now to finish the presence of historical types in the park,” Alexander said.
“We are effectively spreading our eggs and putting them in various baskets,” Vickery said, adding that he wished to see a growing population of white rhinocerouses in Zinave in 10 years.
