The Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) have run a successful black rhino translocation and re-stocking scheme with private farmers and communal conservancies for a number of years. The concept is to establish breeding nuclei of rhino throughout the country in relatively secure locations where their protection becomes the responsibility of the landowner or community - the “Rhino Custodians” - although the State remains the “owner”. The Custodians then have the benefit of “using” the rhino for tourism, while making a direct contribution to the conservation of an endangered species. The //Huab and Doro !Nawas Conservancies became Rhino Custodians with inward translocations in 2009 and 2012 respectively.

The Conservation Travel Foundation provides the MET Rhino Custodianship Programme, specifically the Capture and Translocation Team, with a facility to access funds quickly where necessary, without bureaucratic delays, to meet some of those urgent issues that inevitably crop up when working in the field.
