Original text on this topic:
White rhinos became extinct within Botswana by the end of the 19th century through hunting activities (Bryden, 1893). Through a reintroduction programme between 1967 and 1981, a total of 71 white rhinos were successfully re-established m Chobe National Park and Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana from Natal, South Africa (Hitchins, 1988). However, owing to recent poaching activities the population has again been greatly reduced (Gavor, 1988).
