Black Rhino Range Expansion Project

The World Wildlife Fund and and Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife's Black Rhino Range Expansion Project  successfully transported its seventh black rhino population, using seemingly unconventional means. The immense trip transported 19 of the animals 1,500 km across South Africa to a secret new location in Limpopo province.

The technique of airlifting a rhinoceros by its ankles might not sound like the most humane of acts, but it’s a safe and effective way to move the large beasts and will save this critically endangered species.
