The Bhejane Trust

Bhejane Trust relies on donor funding to continue it’s operations.

Our Work

Bhejane Trust (“Bhejane” is the local Ndebele name for Black Rhino) is a Zimbabwe registered non profit trust, established in 2010 by two Zimbabwean conservationists, Trevor Lane and Stephen Long. The trust was initially established with the objective of monitoring of the remaining Black Rhino population in the Sinamatella area of Hwange National Park, in conjunction with the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority and the SAVE the African Rhino Foundation of Australia. The Trust has a comprehensive Memorandum of Agreement drawn up with the Parks Authority, covering their spheres of cooperation.

Black Rhino Monitering Project

Based up at Sinamatella, Hwange National Park the rhino monitoring program was launched in 2010. Today the project assists Parks in many aspects of their operations, not just the rhino monitoring by assisting with ranger deployments, anti-poaching, maintaining existing and installing new solar pump units, National Parks staff welfare, helping provide for tourist camp sites, plus a host of other duties, as Parks had the enthusiasm and ability, but not the vehicles and equipment to undertake these tasks.
