To protect black rhinos from poaching and habitat loss, WWF is taking action in three African rhino range countries: Namibia, Kenya, and South Africa.
Together, these nations hold about 87% of the total black rhino population.
Wildlife crime—in this case, poaching and black-market trafficking of rhino horn—continues to plague the species and threaten its recovery.
WWF supports annual aerial population surveys at key sites such as Etosha National Park in Namibia.
WWF launched an international effort to save wildlife in 1961, rescuing black rhinos—among many other species—from the brink of extinction.
Thanks to persistent conservation efforts across Africa, the total number of black rhinos grew from 2,410 in 1995 to more than 5,000 today.
Human activities such as agriculture, settlements, and infrastructure development result in the loss and fragmentation of rhino habitat, which increases the risk of poaching and inbreeding.
Of all the threats facing black rhinos, poaching is the deadliest.
