Exxaro’s Rhino Relocation Project: A Documentary About the Process and Obstacles Encountered

Exxaro is a South Africa-based mining company that participated in the relocation of ten white rhinos from Limpopo to Botswana in 2014. Although rhinos’ appearances in this recently released documentary are brief because they are being transported, Exxaro’s documentary demonstrates the process rhino relocation entails and the obstacles (including sometimes unanticipated ones) the team encounters as they try to bring rhinos to safer locations. Among the issues, the need for regulations to adapt to different contexts and situations is highlighted. The same regulations that were drawn up to help rhinos can also put them in precarious situations.
