Loisaba Conservancy new home to 21 Black Rhinos

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and partners celebrate the successful translocation of 21 Eastern Black Rhinos to Loisaba Conservancy, establishing a new viable breeding population in a country that now has 17 sanctuaries where the species has recovered since being on the brink of extinction just a few decades ago.

Loisaba, located in Laikipia County, received the 21 Rhinos from Nairobi National Park, Ol Pejeta and Lewa conservancies in an 18-day exercise executed by highly trained capture and veterinary experts drawn from KWS and its partners. The translocation was made possible by the support of various partners, including: The Nature Conservancy, San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance, Space for Giants, Elewana Collection, Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Lewa Conservancy and the goodwill of communities that support conservation efforts.
