Reply To: Dehorning Rhinos

Lucy Chimes

Yes so my project is looking at the impact on the fitness of dehorned black rhinos and not so much on the behaviour side due to time constraints, inability to collect data due to covid etc but I am considering developing my project into more behavioural assessment for a phd. There is very limited research available on the impacts on behaviour and social interactions of dehorning but the best study I have found is the doctoral thesis of Samuel Penny at the University of Brighton which covers a lot of different aspects of dehorning. I have attached the link below for you if you are interested!
