African Parks has officially launched the rewilding phase of African Parks has officially launched the rewilding phase of "Rhino Rewild"

African Parks, a conservation NGO that manages 22 protected areas in partnership with 12 governments across Africa, has announced that it has officially launched the rewilding phase of "Rhino Rewild", an ambitious plan to rewild 2,000 southern white rhino into secure protected areas in Africa over the next 10 years. The Munywana Conservancy in Northern KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, received 40 southern white rhino in support of the conservancy's successful conservation and community efforts. To achieve a successful outcome of this translocation, the animals' body condition and parasite adaptation will be closely monitored as they adjust to their new environment. In addition, the conservancy will implement its intensive security measures to ensure the safety of the 40 dehorned rhino.

The Munywana Conservancy, a collaboration of private and community landowners, is a protected wildlife conservation area in Northern KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, spanning 29,866 hectares. The conservancy has a proud history of successful conservation endeavours and groundbreaking research which have been instrumental to the protection of threatened species including rhino, cheetah, pangolin, lion and elephant.
