Goodnews for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex

One of the things that brings the Duke and Duchess of  Sussex so much joy besides being parents to their son, Archie, would be Conservation.  

Prince Harry gave his time to working on projects across Africa to protect black Rhinos after he left the army and years after he became the patron of Rhino Conservation, Botswana. 

Moreso, the African continent has hosted prince Harry and his wife Meghan on special occasions and milestones in their relationship as the couple visited Botswana while they were dating and took a tour as new parents with baby Archie was to South Africa in September 2019.

The Duke and Duchess will therefore be delighted to know that Africa's black rhino population saw an annual growth rate of 2.5 per cent between 2012 and 2019, from an estimated 4,845 to 5,630 animals in the wild, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Dr Grethel Aguilar, Acting Director General of IUCN, said: "While Africa's rhinos are by no means safe from extinction, the continued slow recovery of Black Rhino populations is a testament to the immense efforts made in the countries the species occurs in, and a powerful reminder to the global community that conservation works. At the same time, it is evident that there is no room for complacency as poaching and illegal trade remain acute threats. It is essential that the ongoing anti-poaching measures and intensive, proactive population management continue, with support from national and international actors."
