Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS) received funds from the RRF that will allow them to provide additional support and improvements to the capability of Tanzania National Parks, Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority, and Tanzania Wildlife Authority to protect and monitor their black rhinos. This is essential because the eastern black rhino population in this ecosystem is considered by the IUCN/SSC African Rhino Specialist Group as continentally key and important.
