Save The Waterberg Rhino NPC is located within the Waterberg area of Limpopo, which is approximately 1.7 million hectares in size. This geographical area, which is sparsely populated and has minimal infrastructure with regards to roads and transport links, offers a unique opportunity to create a safe haven for rhino where they can live and breed free from poaching.
To achieve this, STWR in collaboration with many community and security partners have developed a security plan for the region to keep rhinos and people safe. This security plan will also provide protection and security to other biodiversity in the area that can be targeted by poachers, such as pangolins. The Waterberg is an important haven for both white and black rhino. Our area has historically played a critical role for the recovery of both species. It is therefore imperative that rhinos remain safe within the Waterberg area.
