Anti Poaching
Malilangwe re-introduced rhinos between 1996 and 1998. Pre 2008, poaching was limited to snaring for meat and netting of fish. From 2007, Southern Africa experienced a sharp increase in rhino poaching. At this time, the Reserve was only partially fenced and, although the scout force was well-organized, it had fewer personnel and was less militarized.
