A pregnant female rhino is blindfolded in South Africa before being moved to a staging area, as part of a journey that will end in a park in Botswana. The goal is to reestablish the species there and protect the animals from poachers.

Every seven and a half hours a rhino is killed by poachers, which adds up to a horrifying thousand rhinos killed every year for their horns.With only an estimated 4,000 to 5,000 black rhinos and 20,000 white rhinos left in Africa, a enterprising couple, Joubert and his wife Beverly launched a nonprofit campaign to move 100 rhinos from the highest poaching zones in South Africa, to the lowest poaching zone in the whole of Africa, Botswana. The project,  Rhinos Without Borders, is a collaboration with tourism partners Great Plains Conservation and and Beyond.

To help in saving these rhinos, please donate to Rhinos Without Borders.

A Rhinos Without Borders team shortens the horn of a sedated rhino (in a painless process) in order to decrease the risk of injury to the animal during a move to Botswana from South Africa.
