But these guys, more than anyone, deserve boytjie recognition, for the following reasons:
19 of the critically endangered black rhinos were moved, in a seriaaasly bhorthcay manner, from the Eastern Cape to a new location in Limpopo province, with the help of the WWF Black Rhino Range Expansion Project:
A relatively new capture technique was used to airlift some of the rhinos out of difficult or inaccessible areas by helicopter. This entails suspending the sleeping rhino by the ankles for a short trip through the air to awaiting vehicles.
This new procedure is gentler on the darted rhino because it shortens the time it has to be kept asleep with drugs, 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.
The WWF Black Rhino Range Expansion Project’s full BHORSHAAY status is confirmed.
