At least half of Africa's rhinos are now in private hands

African rhino numbers are declining at unsustainable rates in core state-run parks which is why more than half the continent's remaining rhinos are now on private land.

Until the past decade, the largest population of rhinos was found in South Africa's Kruger National Park. This state-run park has, however, lost 76% and 68% of its white and black rhinos over the past decade, respectively. By contrast, the number of white rhinos on private land has steadily increased over the same decade, particularly in South Africa.

Private rhino owners now conserve at least half of the continents' remaining rhinos, and communal lands conserve a growing proportion as well.

There is not enough man power to control poaching.

My wife and I decided we couldn't possibly keep all the illegal hunters out of our forests and our only option, which we didn't like was to lease them to hunting clubs, who can and do patrol them.
