Original text on this topic:
Ol Ari Nyiro Ranch. Data and samples were gathered from known individuals among an indigenous population of 47 black rhinoceros resident on Ol Ari Nyiro ranch, Laikipia, Kenya. This is an unfenced cattle and sheep range of c. 400 km? of lower highland bush country at an altitude of 1600-2000 m. The rhinoceros population, which occupies approximately one third of the ranch area, is protected by a private anti-poaching force, and is at medium density (Goddard 1967, 1970: c. 1 rhinoceros per 4 km?).
