Five black rhinos have been airlifted to the Serengeti National Reserve. Twenty-seven more will follow in bid to save this critically endangered species.
Three female and two male Eastern Black Rhinoceroses were airlifted on a chartered Hercules C-130 aircraft from the South African conservancy where they were raised to Tanzania’s Serengeti National Reserve.
They are the first of 32 of the animals which will be flown home to the native habitat from which their ancestors were evacuated as poachers began decades of slaughtering almost 50 years ago.
