Villagers in western Zimbabwe voluntarily donate land nearby the southern boundary of Hwange National Park enabling the release of white rhinos. The community will retain ownership of the land while securing well-compensated jobs.

Two decades ago, white rhinos were totally wiped out of Hwange National Park border area by poachers. The strategy to recruit scouts from the local community, which will result in raising tourism dollars for community development and create a buffer zone alongside restoration of a feasible population of white rhinos, received strong support from the local community.
