Rhinos

Black rhinos find a new home in Rwanda

The five specimens were born and bred in Europe
Three female and two male eastern black rhinoceros, born and raised in the UK, Denmark and the Czech Republic have been relocated in Rwanda. This is the largest ever transportation of the critically-endangered animal from Europe. Jes Gruner is the park manager in Akagera National Park where the mammals are getting accustomed to their new environment.

Northern white rhinos: could science save the sub-species?
After the death of the last male northern white rhino, scientists are looking at new ways to revive the sub-species on the brink of extinction.
The project is an example of animal assisted therapy for traumatised veterans.
It is hoped looking after the animals will help those suffering with PTSD.
