Rhinos relocated to Borana Ranch

27 August 2013, 12:34 Wilshere

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) on Monday began the relocation of 10 black rhinos from Lake Nakuru National Park as one way to reduce their population at the park.

The ten black rhinos were relocated to Borana Ranch in Eastern region where there is low population of the wildlife animals.

While speaking to the media, KWS Central Rift conservation assistant director Jonathan Kirui said the black rhinos were many at the park and they had to be relocated to other parks in the country.

“We had high number of black rhinos here in Nakuru Park and that’s why we had to relocate some of the animals to other areas”  said Kirui.

He added that the Borana ranch will provide a conducive environment for the rhinos to breed without being interfered with.

Kirui also said that some 11 rhinos from the Lewa conservancy will also be relocated to Borana ranch as part of conservation and protection efforts of the endangered animal.

“We are really hoping to take more animals to the ranch because we want to protect these animals” he said.

The KWS official also noted that the number of buffaloes at Nakuru Park had doubled more than the required number at the park.

Kirui said Nakuru National Park has the holding capacity of only 500 buffaloes but at the moment the park has a total of 4,500 buffaloes at the park.

“We have so many buffaloes at the park and now we are also thinking of relocating some of them to other conservations”  he said.
