8 Black Rhinos die after being moved
#1
Sad 
This is a very sad thing. The Rhinos were moved to a new national park. The move was intended to help with rhino survival.
Eleven black rhinos were moved and eight of them died. It is thought there might have been an issue with the water. The new park has water that is saltier than the animals are used to. They  would have drunk more water when they felt thirsty and that would have made things worse.

It is sad when the best of intentions backfire.  Moving animals is not an easy job. The move itself can endanger them. 
The new conditions can put them at risk. Worse, movements of animals are usually part of a conservation effort and they often involve very endangered species.

I hope the remaining 3 rhinos can survive.
