Rhino’s are large animals, this we can all agree upon. In South Africa, rhino poaching has gotten out of hand and black rhinos have been placed on the critically endangered list

Aidan Soule - Tuesday, April 28, 2015



Transporting these animals to a place of safety is in the best interest of the animals as well as trying to keep them from going extinct.

The conservation group WWF and local government agencies in South Africa have come up with an alternative mode of transport that is quicker and safer for the rhino being transported.

Some may say that this is cruel, but Jacques Flamand who is head of the WWF project assures us that “This procedure is gentler on the darted rhino because it shortens the time it has to be sedated, the respiration is not as compromised as it can be in a net and it avoids the need for travel in a crate over terrible tracks.”

He adds: “The helicopter translocations usually take less than ten minutes, and the animals suffer no ill effect,” he noted that the rhinos are transported to trucks where the road conditions are suitable for animal transport.

"All of the veterinarians working on the translocation agreed that this was now the method of choice for the well-being of the animals," he said.

A total of seven populations have been created between 2003 and 2011 which totals 120 black rhinos. 
"Translocating rhinos always involves risk," Flamand said, "but we cannot keep all our eggs in one basket."

Across the African continent there are an estimated population of 5000 black rhino left and white rhino, also native to the African continent, are better off with an estimated population of 20 000 left across the continent.

Subscribing to newsletters and reports through the best analysts available is an excellent tool to make use of because often they analyze the historic charts for you.

Coins created from this platinum also are actually excellent gifts to member of the family during special occasions.
