Species: Black Rhino

Original text on this topic:
Within recent times, the distribution extended from the hills of Ngaound?r? in the south to the bend in the river B?nou? (north of Garoua). It is currently within the zone of three national parks: Faro, B?nou? and Bouba Ndjidah. These parks in total have 730.000 ha, and are surounded by hunting zones of another 1.200.000 ha. 40% of the rhinos live within the confines of the parks, except in B?nou? where they seem to have disappeared, and 60% in hunting zones. Some animals sometimes enter Chad from Bouba-Ndjida. With such a large area and limited number, the density is very low and the animals are much isolated from each other.
