Chairperson SRT says organization will intensify its operations and shift its focus to adopting a more proactive approach for protection of rhinos

OPUWO: The chairperson of ‘Save The Rhino Trust’ in Namibia (SRT), Dudu Murorua says the organisation will intensify its operations and shift its future focus from monitoring to adopting a more proactive approach for the extensive protection of rhinos.

According to Murorua, this shift was prompted by the recent sudden increase in rhino poaching in Namibia, and especially in the Kunene Region.

Murorua told Nampa in a telephonic interview yesterday that rhino poaching has become a great concern not only for Kunene Region, but for the world as rhinos worldwide are very limited in their numbers.

Two rhinos and their calves were poached in the Kunene Region during the month of December 2014.

No suspects have been arrested yet in either of the two poaching cases, and police investigations continue.
