Quiet Hope

A young white rhino waits, blindfolded and partially drugged after a long journey from South Africa, to be released into the wild in Botswana as part of efforts to rebuild Botswana's lost rhino populations. Botswana is saving rhinos from poaching hotspots in neighbouring countries and translocating them to re-establish the populations of rhinos it lost to poaching by 1992.
