Original text on this topic:
From these records they have compiled a reasonable understanding of the home ranges of the rhino. These are, as could he expected much larger (up to 750 km?) than those of rhino in high-rainfall areas like Zululand or Kruger National Park (100 km? ). By keeping records of the animals and regularly patrolling their ranges, they can detect any signs of poachers, which are then immediately followed up by the D.N.C. officers. They also record calving, and when youngsters leave their mothers; from this they will eventually build up a solid body of data on the population dynamics of these rhino.
