Flying rhinos to safety

Conservation groups take sky-high measures to save endangered Black Rhino from being hunted for horns in South Africa.

    Conservation groups in South Africa have taken sky-high measures to save the country's endangered Black Rhinos from extinction.

    In a bid to protect the large mammals from poachers, who are killing them at the average rate of one a day for their horns, the World Wide Fund, together with other conservation organisations, are flying the rhinos to safer areas.
