Imvelo’s long-term vision for their Community Rhino Conservation Initiative (CRCI) programme falls into three phases. The first involved the development of a 200 ha sanctuary as a secure home for the first two white rhino where they can adapt to their new environment. Phase two will be the development of several other similar sanctuaries of 200 – 500 ha. The final phase will see all these smaller sanctuaries combined into one large protected area or conservancy, creating a buffer zone between the Park and the community. This will minimize human-wildlife conflict and maximise potential for socio-economic development based on tourism.
