Original text on this topic:
Between 1970 and 1977, a number of black rhinoceros (approximately 43) were captured and removed from the upper Ugab and central Damaraland and transported to the Etosha National Park by the Directorate of Nature Conservation and Recreational Resorts in an effort to give better protection to the population. This left a relic population behind which numbered more than 100 in Damaraland and approximately 150 in Kaokoland.
