Original text on this topic:
Black rhinos, once relatively common in northern Botswana, were drastically reduced in number by past hunting and more recently by poaching activities. Less than 20 individuals were suspected to occur within the region in 1968 (Smithers, 1971), and even fewer towards the end of the 1980s (Potgeiter & Walker, 1989).
