Annual Gathering

Our Board of Trustees field trip this year focused on our work with the communities who live in and around wildlife areas in the Okavango. RCB works with these communities to improve their livelihoods and to build trusting relationships that can withstand the threat of poaching interests. It is our profound conviction that local people should understand the value that rhinos and their habitat can bring to their communities, feel a sense of national pride in the rhinos, and see themselves as active participants in conservation efforts. With this attitude, these communities become RCB’s eyes and ears on the ground, protecting the country’s rhinos.
