Animal Mega Moves: Rhinos

Animal Mega Moves: Rhinos
A team of specialist animal movers attempts to move five mighty black rhinos about 1,000 miles across Africa by road and air to a reserve in Zambia to help save the species from extinction. Zambia was once home to 12,000 black rhinos. But heavy poaching wiped them all out, bringing this magnificent animal to the brink of extinction. This unique mission is fraught with dangers and difficulties as the team races to adapt a special cargo aircraft to transport the rhinos to their new reserve safely.
