Location: Africa
Subject: Distribution - Status
Species: Black Rhino

Original text on this topic:
Continent-wide, black rhino numbers stabilized at about 2400 between 1992 and 1995, increasing up to 2600 by 1997. Encouragingly, the latest 1999 black rhino estimate of -2700 indicates numbers continue to creep upwards. The major range states are still South Africa (1 074), Namibia (695), Zimbabwe (435) and Kenya (420). While the increase is encouraging, some rated populations in a number of range states have been performing suboptimally and may be overstocked.
