The rhino is loaded onto a truck and driven to a quarantine ‘boma’ (an enclosure about a hectare in size and generally made of thick wooden stakes.) Then it goes through a six-week quarantine period. The rhinos are fed and given water but human contact is still kept to an absolute minimum.
#Rhino25 will be kept in the boma with other rhinos on the same journey, so will have company and will be able to socialise. The rhino will also be fed by hand by an experienced team member. They will also be exercised daily so that they stay fit and active.
