It takes a trained ear to hear the difference between *beep* and *beeep*, but that’s exactly how rangers at East Africa’s first community conservancy use audible frequencies from what is called “telemetry” to track critically-endangered black rhinos.
CNN and National Geographic Traveler recently featured the Sera Community Conservancy for their protection of the rhinos and it’s newly added rhino tracking experience. Sera has teamed up with a new camp in the area to offer a walking safari that allows guests to actively contribute to the protection of the iconic species.
Since the conservancy’s creation, they have had a 100% success rate of protection from poachers. Now, more than 700 black rhinos inhabit Kenya. The hard work of the communities in Sera has also shaped better rangeland management that has brought back several other wildlife species, including elephant and zebra.
