Rhino Protection Unit makes a difference

January 28, 2010

The Rhino Protection Unit based in Tabin Wildlife Reserve performs a number of vital activities that include monitoring the movement and behaviour of rhinos within the area, and keeping a vigilant look out for poachers and others that would seek to harm them. Tracking activities which include measuring footprints, monitoring wallows and salt licks is slowly helping to build up a database of the rhinos of Tabin. Members of the RPU are young men and women that are very capable in the forest. They are able to carry heavy packs and to find their way around without the use of specialised equipment. Most have a love for the outdoors and a special interest and curiousity about rhinos.

The addition of Tam as the resident rhino bachelor contributes a different and yet joyful dimension to RPU work - that is the feeding and care of this charming individual. Some of the daily activities of the RPU members are captured in this Photo Gallery.
