Building on a strong foundation of science, partnerships and field capability, Rhino Conservation Botswana (RCB) is dedicated to monitoring and protecting wild black and white rhino in Botswana, contributing significantly to the survival of these iconic African species.

RCB believes that rhinos must be preserved for future generations. These magnificent animals have roamed the Earth for 50 million years, and the organization is not prepared to let them go extinct under their watch. Protecting rhinos also safeguards the vast ecosystems in which they live – some of the last great wilderness areas on Earth. These natural systems sustain our planet, and the human race. The survival of the natural world is inextricably linked to our own, and that is why RCB is working hard to save what we have left.

Over the past two decades Rhino Conservation Botswana has been working with its partners, including the governments of Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe, to help reintroduce black and white rhinos to Botswana. Over the next few years they aim to build populations of rhinos living wild and free in the Okavango Delta until they are of international importance.

Their hope has always been that this population will increase swiftly, and, in time, the rhinos will populate new areas of Botswana. The current poaching crisis has been a setback, but long-term, we are still striving to see our proud country supporting between 5,000 and 10,000 wild rhinos.

Ultimately, RCB hopes that Botswana’s rhinos will still become one of the great aspirations for the survival of these species.
