Olmoti and Jasiri, black rhinos, play in enclosure at Safari Park in Dvur Kralove nad Labem, Czech Republic, 19 June 2019 (issued 20 June 2019). Three black rhinos (Diceros bicornis michaeli) from Safari Park Dvur Kralove and two black rhinos from other European gardens will set out for Akagera National Park in Rwanda on 23 June. This is the largest rhino transport ever from Europe to Africa, where they should start a new population. All animals are prepared for the trip in Dvur Kralove. The trip will include three rhinos from Dvur, Jasiri, Jasmina and Manny, female Olmoti from the English zoo Flamingo Land and male Mandela from Denmark. These five will find a new home in Akagera National Park, Rwanda, where the last rhinos were seen in 2007. According to Safari Park, only about 700 black rhinos live in the wild.
