Watch Fauna & Flora International VP Stephen Fry on BBC 2

Some of you may remember the fantastic story of the translocation of four of the last eight northern white rhinos back to Africa.

Now you can watch it all unfold on the BBC’s ‘Return of the Rhino: A Last Chance to See Special’ starring Stephen Fry and Mark Cawardine. It airs this Sunday 31st October at 8pm on BBC 2!

Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is proud to play a lead role in the initiative. We fundraised for and helped to organize the massive task of translocating four rhinos from Dvur Kralove Zoo in the Czech Republic to Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

The move took place back in December 2009 and we’re happy to say the rhinos have settled in beautifully.

Stephen Fry is an FFI Vice President and a fantastic ambassador for our groundbreaking conservation work.

It should prove to be an exciting hour of entertainment and education. After all, figuring out how to fly four two-tonne rhinos from their longtime home in cold Eastern Europe to their ancestral homeland in Africa makes for some interesting moments!
