A grant of 200.000 EUR has been awarded to “Save the Rhino Trust” Namibia to support local communities in protecting the world’s last free ranging black rhino and the sustainability of initiatives that bring revenue to these communities. Funded by the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States and the European Union, the two-year project will train and equip SRT trackers and rhino rangers to continue monitoring and protecting the rhinos in the Kunene and Erongo regions. The grant will also help improve collection of rhino monitoring data through the use of new technology in the field as well as the installation of critical infrastructure needed for communication and well-being of rhino trackers whilst on patrol.
