Editorial -- Rhino Conservation in Africa

Volume 13, Issue 2 -- December 2018

The death of Sudan, the last male northern white rhinoceros in March 2018, and unabated poaching of the surviving rhinos has inexorably pushed them into an extinction vortex in Africa.

We bring stories from people who are at the forefront of rhino conservation in Africa in this 5th anniversary issue of ACT.

Adesina Olufemi Samson gives an overview.

Susie Ellis and Kelly Russo write about the black rhinos teetering on the brink in Zimbabwe.

Gayle Pederson dwells on conservation genetics for rhino conservation.

Rhino Fund Uganda have contributed a piece on Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Uganda.

Rhino Conservation Botswana focus on the return of the megaherbivores to Botswana.

Enjoy reading. Big thanks to all our contributors for choosing the ACT with their work

The next issue is due March 2019 and is planned as a special issue on Amphibian Conservation in Africa. As always, we look forward to your contributions.
