Despite an Increase in poaching since the 1990's, the population has been increasing. This is due to an increased effort to move the remaining Black Rhinos to protected habitats.
Black Rhinos are typically inactive during the hottest part of the day. A few hours before sun down they wake or leave their mud pools and graze. The only time they move is to find more food or to go to a new water hole.
Rhinos have a relatively low impact on their environment. This is due to their primary feeding of only grass and small shrubs as opposed to eating more slow growing plants like trees.
