Just an amazing picture to share with you.

Endangered Species of the Day: A sedated Black Rhino is transported by air from South Africa’s Eastern Cape to a new habitat in the northeastern province of Limpopo as part of the WWF Black Rhino Range Expansion Project — an ambitious conservation campaign that aims to “increase the range and numbers of black rhino in South Africa.”
Nature conservation organisations are fighting an uphill battle to save the critically endangered species, as rumors of the rhino horn’s cancer-curing abilities fuel poaching that has claimed the lives of over 350 rhinos in South Africa this year alone.
There are believed to be fewer than 4,240 Black Rhinos remaining.
