Subject: Distribution - Records
Species: Black Rhino

Original text on this topic:
The last few remaining western black rhino (Diceros bicornis longipes) in Caneroon are so isolated and scattered that they in all probability are doomed to extinction if left where they are. Time is running out for this subspecies, and the AfRSG has been promoting initiatives to examine and cost the various options for the consolidation and protection of the last remaining animals. Diplomatic efforts to seek high level commitment from the Cameroon authorities are being encouraged. and once this has been obtained, the AfRSG has recommended to IUCN France that as a matter of urgency, a meeting of all stakeholders be held to decide on and draw up a plan of conservation action with an implementation schedule, and that significant international funding will need to be secured for such a programme.
