Red letter day for the Black Rhino

[ May 31, 2017   //   ]

Etihad Cargo and animal transport specialist Intradco Global are helping to take the endangered Black Rhino off the critical list. Intradco chartered two 777 freighters from the Abu Dhabi airline to move 19 of the animals from Johannesburg to the Rwandan capital, Kigali on behalf of the African Parks conservation organization. The project to return the rhinos took place over the first two weeks of May, and represents a historical moment for the country after the species disappeared in 2007 following decades of widespread poaching.
