Latest Birth On The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary Of The Rhino Fund Uganda Brings Overall Number To 32

Just over two weeks since the last birth of a rhino baby on the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary has the Rhino Fund Uganda reported the birth of another one little one, number 27 in the long line of this most successful breeding project.

The male calf, named Jabali, was born last night just after 10 pm local time to mother Bella, who is now a 6 times mom.
Bella was among the first four rhinos brought to the sanctuary by the Rhino Fund Uganda, came from Kenya’s Solio Conservancy and has since then been at the core of the breeding programme which was launched when the sanctuary at Ziwa was established.

Ziwa’s rate of reproduction, attributed to competent management and a conducive environment, is one of the highest on record anywhere and has been mentioned time and again in literature and studies, when comparing such programmes across Africa.
