About the Rhino Protection Project
Protecting the Rhinos located inside the Pilanesberg National Park is an ongoing battle to remain one step ahead of poachers. Through donations from the Pilanesberg Wildlife Trust and other sources, the park has been able to purchase specialised equipment as well as provide training to field rangers on monitoring rhinos in the field which provides a sound basis for continuing patrols and protection of the animals.
