A dynamic moment during white rhino capture. In the background, we see the helicopter taking to the air after dropping off the dart-man (shortly after tranquilising the rhino by dart from the helicopter). The ground team wait, having immobilised the rhino. The rhino stands, roped-up, and blindfolded. This rhino was subsequently translocated by road to a safer reserve (lower risk of poaching).
