MICHAEL LEECH, Trustee, Save The Rhino Trust, protecting Namibia's rhinos for more than 35 years.
​Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) Namibia has worked tirelessly to protect the desert-adapted black rhino of the Kunene and Erongo regions.From the point of near extinction, the rhino population has rebounded, and SRT is proud to be part of this success.  

SRT operates in a remote, rugged area of more than a million hectares, with few fences, no national park status and no controls over who goes in or out.  Working closely with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, local communities and NGOs, our dedicated teams of trackers go out on daily patrols to monitor this last truly free-ranging population of black rhino in the world.  

But there is no time for complacency. Organized crime syndicates are here, acting with military precision and targeting our rhinos, and we are intensifying our efforts in the face of this grave threat.
