The inspiration for Rhinos Without Borders was a response to the dire situation that faced rhinos in Africa in 2013 and 2014, with rhino poaching at an all-time high, concerned conservationists needed to be proactive.
With the support of the government of Botswana to translocate rhinos from South Africa in order to support the development of additional source populations in Botswana’s wild place. The Government has ownership of all rhinos in the Delta, and have deemed it necessary to put these rhinos into secure protected areas, under the protection of the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP), for their own survival. Africa Foundation and andBeyond would like to continue to support the monitoring of Rhinos through the DWNP, in the protected areas.
With the imminent formal closure of Rhinos Without Borders, and the end of 3 years of monitoring support that the project planned, the two partners from the Rhinos Without Borders programme , andBeyond and Africa Foundation would like to continue to support the monitoring of rhinos through the Department of Wildlife and Protection. The protection of rhinos is a specialist function, however does require specialised equipment. To achieve this the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP) has developed a list of strategic equipment to achieve their protective goals. The rhino protection activities under this grant will be carried out entirely by the DWNP at an undisclosed location. Through the partnership of andBeyond and DWNP, there is increasingly high levels of trust in their relationship
