Rhino Keepers for a Day

What’s it like to care for eastern black rhinos? Maddie Moate and Greg Foot find out at the Port Lympne Reserve, a wild animal park run by The Aspinall Foundation in Kent. The duo’s chores for the day include feeding the rhinos, weighing them, cleaning up their stalls, and making fresh hay beds.

As Moate discusses in the video, black rhinos are critically endangered due to poaching. As a part of their conservation efforts, the Aspinall Foundation’s goals are return these animals to their native habitats in eastern and southern Africa, or find opportunities for the rhinos to breed and help propagate the species.
