Reports in a press release dated 2015-07-03


SANParks’ survey techniques to count rhinos in Kruger National Park have received a stamp of approval for the second time from the scientific community.


SANParks published a peer-reviewed scientific paper on 29 June 2015 in Public Library of Science ONE, a scientific journal with an impact factor of 3.53, on the Kruger rhino survey results of 2013.


Counting exactly how many rhinos are in the Kruger is difficult. The paper outlines the methodology used in determining a range of values for the rhino population within which the real population size would be, given that it is not feasible to count each and every animal within the Park.
