Rhinos

The Serious Desert team visited north-west Namibia. There’s loads of wildlife in this area including gazelle, elephants, lions, leopards and black rhino of course. As well as spotting rhinos, the team saw zebra, giraffe and springbok. There are snakes and scorpions to watch out for too, as well as some pretty large desert beetles!

The Serious Desert mission involved helping to track the endangered black rhino. In the past 40 years the black rhino population in Africa has declined from 100,000 to about 3,000. The team helped vets to track rhinos and built a camel enclosure. Get more rhino information here:
