    Desperate plan to airlift rhinos to AUSTRALIA may save them from extinction

    Desperate plan to airlift rhinos to AUSTRALIA may save them from extinction

    IN a desperate attempt to save rhinos from extinction, an unorthodox plan is underway to try and save the huge beasts Ė by airlifting them to another continent.

    Wildlife expert Ray Dearlove founded the Australian Rhino Project, an organisation with a radical approach to conservation.

    With the species under increasing threat, Ray plans to bolster Aussie rhino populations by airlifting African rhinos over 6,800 miles to the Monarto Zoo safari park in Australia.

    These will act as an Ďinsurance populationí to ensure the creatures' survival, as part of a move which could prove crucial to the threatened species.

    With the number of rhinos killed by poachers at a record high, time is running out for the amazing creatures.

    It is estimated that over 5,000 rhinos have been killed in South Africa since 2010, where the kill rate of rhinos has recently exceeded the birth rate for the first time ever.

    So many rhinos fall victim to poaching because they represent such big bucks for hunters, who can sell their horns at prices in excess of £55,000 per kilogram.

    The black market for rhino horns is particularly big in Vietnam and China, where the horns are thought to be highly valuable as a traditional medicine.

    But the Australian Rhino Project aims to airlift 20 of the heavyweight creatures every year for the next four years, with the organisation claiming that the species is facing extinction within the next decade if drastic action isnít taken to save them.

    And, amazingly, this isnít even the first time conservationists have airlifted rhinos out of harmís way.

    Last year Rhinos Without Borders started moving 100 animals, and in 2013 the Wold Wildlife Fund moved rhinos as part of their Black Rhino Range Expansion Project.

    Australia does not allow new species to be introduced, they have learnt from their past mistakes.
    This is an April 1st spoof

    I think El Tel has it right, at $55K a kilo these things will still need protecting.

    Fucking stupid Chinkies, they will eat anything that they think will give them a 3" erection.

    They could just buy an island like one of the Cape Verde or Sao Tome ones, and just turn it into a Jurassic Park type place, governed by the UN to put all the beasties there for posterity. I dunno why they didn't do this with the Galapagos & Rapa Nui too.

    I really hope this story is fake. That continent's still trying to recover from the last time they relocated some ugly horny beasts there.

    Considering you are a kaffer from South Africa I'd rethink that slur.

    If you look at the pictures in the linked article, you'll see one where the rhino is hanging upside down under this chopper with a rope around each leg.

    I call fake, because they would never transport that way.

    Actually with the camels theres a success story,
    The Saudis wanted some new blood for their racing camels and found in Aus some that had good blood lines.
    They bred some for racing, found if they bred dromedary with bactrian they got a really fast camel but it had three humps.
    They call them Tri Hump 650.

    I'd imagine they'd electronically tagged with GPS.

    IN A WORLD-FIRST conservation effort, 80 African rhinos will be flown to Australia over the next four years to establish an insurance population for the threatened mammals.
    It is an ambitious mission – costing $70,000 per rhino and requiring each animal to spend several months in quarantine under the watchful eyes of the South African and Australian Departments of Agriculture.
    The Australian Rhino Project was founded in 2013 by South African-born Australian Ray Dearlove, with the aim to establish a breeding herd of black and white rhinos in Australia that will be able to be reintroduced to Africa once the threat of poaching decreases.

    Why don't they air drop them in Wales.

    There is lots of good leek foraging in the valleys and they will be safe from the chinese who are bidding on the Kidman ranch outback at the moment which could become the biggest overseas land purchase approval in Australian history.

    Yes he is correct, as long as you don't count the few wild wooly herds in Mongolia, but being a different species they are probably counted separately

    If you saw 2 it does not mean you were drunk as there are dromedaries and bactrians outback.

    Awww, the butthurt is strong on this touchy subject. You come from a filthy, abo and bogan-ridden kuntry. Man up and accept it, you two bit chutney ferret.

    And no, I am not a "kaffer". I am a white South African of British stock (so if you're going to 'try' and affront me, call me a 'soutpiel').

    Christ, you're feeble in your old age. And a fucking terrible speller too. Then again, firemen are not known for their intelligence, wit or ability to articulate.

    Semantics, scrubber, semantics. It was a term given to all British South Africans, along with 'Red Neck'.

    We called the filthy Afrikaaners 'Rock Spiders', amongst many other colourful terms of endearment.

    That said my "4 incher" has delighted and pleasured hundreds of women around the globe. It's a master in its own class.
