The Power in Partnerships and Pride to Protect Rhino – an update from Namibia

Jeff Muntifering, Conservation Biologist, Minnesota Zoo
Date:  Wednesday, April 17, 2019
Time:  7:00-9:00 p.m.

While the fight to protect Africa’s majestic rhinos continues , a hopeful case is emerging from Namibia. Here, where the Minnesota Zoo has partnered with Namibian conservation organizations for the past decade to support rhino protection efforts, a new approach that prioritizes cultivating partnerships, and more recently ‘Rhino Pride’, has seen significant success. The last rhino poaching case was in 2017, and a dramatic rise in local information being provided to police has helped thwart numerous would-be poaching attempts. Come hear Minnesota Zoo’s Conservation Biologist Dr. Jeff Muntifering, who is based in Namibia, share this success story straight from the front-lines of rhino protection in Namibia.

Presentations are geared toward adult learners and take place during an adult-only event.
