Lowveld Rhino Trust

The Lowveld Rhino Trust (LRT) is a conservation organization operating primarily in the South-East Lowveld of Zimbabwe. LRT works to increase both black and white rhino numbers and range in the Lowveld region. Zimbabwe has been facing a rhino poaching crisis and in the last five years over 300 rhinos have been poached. To help reduce poaching LRT translocates rhinos from high-risk areas to safer locations; treats rhinos with snare and bullet wounds; assists authorities with prosecuting poachers; and intensively tracks and monitors rhinos to confirm their ongoing wellbeing. LRT is also working to engage rural communities more closely in rhino conservation. This is important work as the long term survival of rhinos depends on the people who live with them. Unless rhinos are seen as having value to these communities they will have little reason to help protect them or maintain land for rhinos to live on.
