The black rhinoceros is returning to Chad after almost 50 years.

Earlier today, six black rhinos were loaded for transport from South Africa as the result of an unprecedented international collaboration among South Africa’s Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA), the Chadian Government, South African National Parks (SANParks) and African Parks, to reintroduce the species to the Republic of Chad.
