Rhinos are the most endowed giant species In the Savannah inhabiting open plains where they graze freely in families.

Eight rhinos from the Rhino national park in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, and six from a wildlife reserve in the Rift Valley will be relocated to Tsavo East National Park rhino sanctuary, one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya, in the southeast near the coast, Najib Balala the Tourism Minister said.
Man has been a great threat to wildlife, Poaching increases day by day across the sub-Saharan Africa, the pride being a glance loss. The Rhinoceros and elephants being the most suffer mores in this case.

Rhinoceros being killed by man for their horns, which are bought and sold on the black market, where the rhino horns cost as much as gold. Other societies using them to make fine ornaments or traditional medicine in East Asia with Vietnam being the source of the largest Market
A need to install and improve surveillance is a thought on project esteemed to use technology to improve on this threat and to easily manage wildlife both inside and outside the national parks, the Tourism Minister lamenting. We could however have a zero poaching world not only in Kenya but across the planet.
It can be remembered be that, three black rhinos were killed in Kenya’s Meru National Park last month, these are most endangered species. Kenya had a rhino population of 1,258 in 2017, with 745 being black rhinos, 510 southern white rhinos and 3 northern white rhinos Balala said authorities have reduced the number of black rhinos at Nairobi National Park from the current 101 as its carrying capacity is limited. The government will maintain 70 at Nakuru National Park in the Rift Valley.
“That’s why we have created a new sanctuary in Tsavo,” he said. “Tsavo national park is huge. It’s almost 19 000 square kilometres. That sanctuary is big so we will slowly be relocating more rhinos to that area.”
