Rhino Conservationist Wins Environmental Award

Zimbabwe is home to the fourth largest rhino population. Du Toit works in the southern part of the country, and has established the Lowveld Rhino Trust with help from the International Rhino Foundation. He has helped protect 350 black rhinos in southern Zimbabwe, particularly made difficult by economic volatility and political upheaval which increased poaching. He established the Lowveld Rhino Trust to help secure larger parcels of wild habitat–areas that currently make life possible for about 80 percent of the country’s wild rhinos.
