Action Plan. 5. Chirisa - Chizarira, Zimbabwe (population estimate 350)
These contiguous protected areas hold up to 400 black rhino in mostly rugged terrain. Poaching has not been a problem, but the present forces are inadequate to counteract commercial poaching. The Zimbabwean authorities were urged to examine the situation carefully and take appropriate action. A small mobile, well equipped anti-poaching unit established in the district could act as an early antidote to any commercial poaching in the complex comprising Chirisa, Chizarira, Chete and Matusadona.
