Swaziland's Biodiversity

Swaziland has a rich diversity of both flora and fauna:

Swaziland's fauna; Swaziland's flora

Threatened Species conservation activities:

In 1995, the Pretoria Zoo donated three ground hornbills to the Malolotja Nature Reserve in Swaziland. The chicks were taken from the Kruger National Park four years ago after they had hatched. Ground hornbills lay two eggs which both hatch, but the second chick usually dies. By removing the second chick from the nest, the project aims to increase the numbers of ground hornbills and thereby save them from extinction.
