Outdoor Enclosure

In the temperate European climate Black rhino require indoor as well as outdoor facilities and each of these facilities is described separately. When designing an enclosure it is important that the zoo environment resembles the natural environment as closely as possible to maximise rhino health and reproductive success, when talking about indoor enclosures this may refer to temperature and lighting.

It is recommended that new holders plan for 2.3 rhinos. However if necessary this may be phased, with an initial build for a minimum of 1.2 rhinos and a commitment to be able to house 2.3 within five years.
