The ecological benefits of rhinos within an ecosystem are significant and have been reported in multiple studies. They act as “ecosystem engineers”, opening grazing lawns for smaller species, helping disperse seeds of various woody species through their dung and providing food sources for dung beetles, egrets and oxpeckers. Wildlife conservation does not only involve animals, we also protect our environment.
Through habitat restoration, areas overgrown with alien invasive plants have been restored to the natural biodiversity of the area, securing additional grazing areas for all animals. We implemented a carefully planned fire management program, which aims to improve grasslands by increasing palatable species, and improving rangeland grazing and browse availability.
