  Rhino Programme - Kenya Wildlife Service
In Kenya, fl rhino numbers dropped from an estimated 20,000 in 1970 to an estimated 550 in 1984, 381 in 1987 and, 398 in 1991.
The numbers of rhinos continue to increase within major sanctuaries, both KWS and the private sanctuaries, at an annual rate of 4-5%, while rhino numbers in the large and difficult areas have remained stable.
Specifically, the goal is to increase the fl rhino numbers by at least 5% per annum and reach a confirmed total of 500 rhinos by 2005, 650 rhinos by 2010 and 1000 rhinos by 2020.

 DSWF - Save The Rhino Trust project
Rhino numbers were reduced to approximately 30 animals in the beautiful, remote landscape of Damaraland and Kunene province.
Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) was set up by Blythe Loutit and other concerned individuals, to work with government and local leaders to conserve the rhino in communal lands by means of anti-poaching patrols and monitoring of the animals.
Today, rhino numbers in the area have increased to between 100-200 and they are now the last truly wild fl rhinos in Africa, not fenced or under armed guard.

 SOS Rhino
Translocations are very elaborate circle-exchanges in which rhinos from zoos or areas with enough individuals are brought to places where populations have become to small to survive on their own.
Pete Morkel, the FZS project leader at Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park, says the rhino rangers are permanently patrolling the crater floor with at least two vehicles and monitor the animals from several fixed observation posts.
Six years later the project was extended to Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya for protection and surveillance of the rhinos in the borderland between Tanzania and Kenya and protection of the wildebeest and zebra dry season habitat in the Serengeti ecosystem.

 Save the Rhinos Campaign Indian Rhino Programs
Indian Rhinos are highly dependent on access to water and mud for the wallowing essential to thermo-regulation and the elimination of parasites, and swim quite well.
The rhino population actually needs to be reduced to protect the habitat and mitigate the increasing human-wildlife conflicts as rhinos venture out of the protected area and into agricultural areas.
The Indian Rhino Program objective is to double the number of secure reserves for Indian Rhinos by adding three new rhino reserves in India, and then within those reserves doubling the population to 100 rhinos each (total of 300) through translocation and support to ensure they are properly protected.

The focus of the ‘Rhino Rescue’ project is not only to save the critically endangered Sumatran Rhino species, but also to raise awareness and to educate the public on environmental and conservation issues.
The overall goal of the project are to secure at least two Protected Areas, in Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah, for the recovery and maintenance of stable Sumatran rhino populations including on-the-ground protection from poachers, and the generation of alternative incomes for those currently dependent, directly or indirectly, in the poaching of rhinos.
Project field activities are working effectively towards achieving targets and milestones set out in the project document.

 WWF | Rhinos | Updates
A field survey of the island of Borneo found evidence of at least 13 Sumatran rhinos in the interior of Sabah—called the Heart of Borneo—that have escaped the relentless poaching that is wiping out most of the rhinos in the region.
In addition to the 13 rhinos found in the interior of Sabah, a region covered with vast tracts of rain forest, a few individuals still survive in other parts of the state that weren't covered in the survey.
There are believed to be fewer than 300 Sumatran rhinos left in the world and they are considered one of the most endangered rhino species because of the intensity of poaching.

Noble efforts to protect and manage rhino populations throughout the 1990s have resulted in a stabilisation and slow recovery of the continental population, particularly in the southern African rhino strongholds of South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe.

These white rhinos were all females, and with their release the target sex ratio of approximately 2/3 females to 1/3 males - the optimum ratio for breeding – has been achieved.
They are very different from the white rhino, of course, being a browsing animal rather than a grazer, and despite their reputation for aggression, they very quickly adapted to their temporary homes in the bomas.
Despite every precaution, one rhino died of stress as we were trying to return her from an area close to the Caprivi Strip which is a poaching flspot, and we had to euthanase a second rhino which incurred a leg injury during transport.

Emi is the only one to give birth twice in captivity; her first delivery in 2001 was the first by a Sumatran rhino bred in captivity since the 19th century.
The breeding program grew out of an international recognition in the early 1980s that the Sumatran rhinos were disappearing at a rapid pace, their rain forest habitat being lost to logging and other development while poachers hunted them for horns that can be sold for tens of thousands of dollars for medicinal uses.
He said increasing rhino protection efforts that battle poachers in their native habitat also is crucial to the conservation effort.

The rhino project aims to double the populations of the Indian, Black and Sumatran rhinos, three of the planet's most endangered species.
Only about 2,500 Indian rhinos are thought to live in the wild, nearly all of them concentrated in the Kaziranga National Park in India and in the Chitwan area of Nepal.

 AWF: A World Without Rhinos?
In the early 1970s rhino horn was in high demand in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, and these magnificent creatures were being poached to the brink of extinction.
AWF cosponsored with World Wildlife Fund and the World Conservation Union an investigation of the rhino trade in North Yemen and Asia that found that North Yemen was one of the highest contributors to the trade and that between 1972 and 1975 the amount of horn legally imported meant the deaths of nearly 8,000 rhinos.
The trust aided the country's scarce rhino population by providing administrative support to conservation efforts as well as the services of a radio specialist who helped develop a communications system that generated publicity about the need for rhino protection and encouraged the government to protect the animals.

The National Zoo’s Rhino Project studies the three major species of rhinoceros, African fl, African white and Indian, to facilitate management and conservation, enhance reproduction and ensure animal well-being.
Rhinos have existed on Earth for more than 50 million years, at one time constituting a diverse array of species that lived throughout North America and Europe as well as in Africa and Asia.
However, it is quite difficult to collect certain types of vital, physiological data from wild rhinos, and these populations are quite vulnerable to catastrophes such as drought and poaching.

Your activities will focus on gathering data on the distribution of rhinos and other large herbivores, including elephants, giraffes, and zebras, and measuring the composition and condition of the vegetation on which these competing animals browse and graze.
Besides patrolling for rhinos, you’ll measure acacia trees to determine vegetation growth; conduct vegetation plot surveys; monitor elephant, giraffe, and rhino damage to acacia trees; and observe the behavior of a captive rhino at close quarters.
Data from this project were already used to support the largest transfer of elephants in East Africa, from Sweetwaters to Meru National Park, to stem habitat degradation.

 Pilanesberg Rhino Project - Notching Rhinos
There are various methods that one can use to identify rhinos for study, one is to build up an identikit based on horn length and shape, another way is to look at individual foot prints and another way is to notch the ears of the rhinos so that rhinos become individuals.
The first two methods work very well when monitoring a small rhino population, but when it comes to monitoring a population as big as that of the Pilanesberg, the notching method is best.
To date 90 white rhino are notched in the Pilanesberg, which is just under half of the population.
