In one of the largest international black rhino translocations to date, African Parks contracted us to relocate 17 black rhino from South Africa to Malawi. The animals were captured in KwaZulu-Natal and quarantined for six weeks before being flown from Durban, South Africa to Lilongwe, Malawi. From there, the precious cargo was driven to Liwonde National Park, where they were subsequently released. The project aimed to boost Malawi’s black rhino populations and aid regional efforts to conserve the critically endangered species.
