Appraisal of the Potential for Rhino Conservation in Mozambique




During 1870, both the white rhino and the black rhino were reported west of the Limpopo River, between its confluences with the Elefantes and Nuanetsi Rivers. But by the late 1950s, excessive hunting had caused the extinction of the white rhino in Mozambique and the black rhino was extinct south of the Save River. This document evaluate the feasibility and the reintroduction options for rhinos in Limpopo National Park, Zinave National Park and Gile Game Reserve. Some preliminary guidelines for the development of a rhino conservation policy for Mozambique are also given.
