THE ASPINALL FOUNDATION HAS SUCCESSFULLY REINTRODUCED 5 EASTERN BLACK RHINO INTO TANZANIA AND 3 INTO SOUTH AFRICA.
Eastern black rhino are the rarest of the three remaining rhino species in Africa. It is estimated there are only about 5,000 black rhinos left in the wild and the Eastern Black Rhino is the rarest of all.
Of the 5,000 only 800 - 1000 are eastern black.Our rhinos are not only living free, but producing healthy wild offspring. The first bull rhino rewilded in 1996 has sired in excess of 15 Calves, some of which have since been relocated to areas where they can continue to breed freely, maintaining genetic diversity.
Among the 6 rewilded female rhinos, the first of whom arrived in Tanzania in 2004, there have been 25 noted successful births to released black rhino with a total of 60 descendants.
We are the number 1 breeder in captivity of this species in the UK and believe that it is our mission to keep sending these animals back to protected reserves in Africa.
