Northern White Rhinos

Hi all,

i've just recieved an email from Ol Pej Conservancy concerning the following.

For those of you who live in the UK, you will get a chance to watch a documentary on the four of the last 8 northern white rhinos that were relocated to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in December 2009. Watch "Return of the Rhino: a Last Chance to See Special" on Sunday, October 31st at 20:00 on BBC Two.

This programme has special meaning for us as last October we were privelidged to get up close and personal with them, some of the pics will be posted on the blog as soon as I can find the ext hard drive from Addis, hope you enjoy the programme.

Hi agy,

Ah! Those four.

I knew of them but heard Uganda were after them for Ziwa but the Czechs were not keen in view of problems. Still, whilst never native to Kenya they are at least getting closer to home.

Maybe the three in San Diego could come too in order to increase the gene pool? We shall see.

Seanus,

Noit sure if this works but just go to www.BBC.co.uk and it may be stored on Iplayer.

I just watched it that way.(thanks agy)

Glad that 747 made it. Not sure I would have risked all four in one plane.

Hi,

You can only use Iplayer in the UK, doesn't work outside the UK for copyright reasons (mores the pity) - anybody know a proxy server service in the UK ? ☺
