The Earthwatch Institute runs the “Saving Sweetwaters’ Rhinos” project that aims to monitor habitat requirements and dynamics of the black rhino, and interactions between rhinos and other browsers and their impact on the vegetation.

This research aims to guide management about the relative abundance of the key browsing species that can sustainably exist within the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The project was established in 1999 and is continuously reviewed to address some of the emerging habitat management challenges on Ol Pejeta.
