The WWF FLEW 19 Rhinos to a new home!


 

Because their horns are used in traditional eastern medicine, Rhinos have been hunted almost to extinction. More than 340 have been killed this year. To prevent more from dying, conservationists decided to move Rhinos to another location.

How do you move something that lives in remote, hard-to-reach locations? By helicopter! They tranquilized the animals and literally strapped them to a new habitat. The exact area was not disclosed, so that there would be no poachers trying to kill them.
