Rwanda Receives Five Black Rhino From Europe

The five eastern black rhino which belong to a critically endangered sub-species, come from zoos in European countries of Czech Republic, Britain and Denmark. Conservationists say that the translocation presents an opportunity to expand the range and protection of the black rhino and repopulate wild populations within secure landscapes.
