Rhino relocation, South Africa – ‘I rode along on the first convoy operated by  Rhinos Without Borders from Free State, South Africa, to the Okavango Delta – a 1500km journey with 15 rhinos– this was the largest transportation of rhinos ever attempted. The rhinos were owned by a Free State farmer whose farm had come under attack by poachers on a number of occasions. He decided that it was safer for the his family and the rhinos to have them relocated by Rhinos Without Borders to Botswana…’ words/images ©Jason Florio / Dodho Magazine
