Rhinos are back in Congo – level 3

19-06-2023 15:00

16 southern white rhinos have been successfully relocated to Garamba National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, marking a significant conservation effort.

The last rhino was poached in the area nearly 16 years ago. The introduction of these rhinos aims to restore the ecological balance in the park and potentially fulfill the role of the extinct northern white rhino.  The translocation was made possible through a collaboration between the Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature, African Parks, and Beyond, with sponsorship from the Barrick Gold Corporation.

By expanding the range and creating new breeding nodes, this initiative contributes to the long-term conservation of white rhinos in Africa. The reintroduction of the rhinos to Garamba National Park holds promise for the park’s wildlife economy and the well-being of local communities.

Difficult words: conservation (prevention of wasteful use of a resource), translocation (moving something from one place to another), node (a line or point).
