The Elon Musk of the animal conservation world is saving rhinos by airlifting them from Africa to Australia

This story reminded me of Noah’s Arc, just that we are saving animals not from the Biblical flood, but ourselves. This is sad times when we, the superpredator, have taken over the world and can’t co-habit with any other species (other than rats, foxes and pigeons – I am in London) without destroying them.

We are ignorant on top of everything – how else can one explain the unending demand for the rhino’s horn in Asia? We really ought to elevate ourselves to the next level of awareness, from archaic, idiotic and blind to understanding, grateful and caring.

Is Ray Dearlove a modern Noah and rhinos’ only hope of survival? Is he the Elon Musk of conservation world? Is he mad? He is making a difference and it’s all that matters. Rhino refugees, never thought I’d see the day. Should we save other animals this way too? Who knows, one day we may be going to Australia, not Africa, for a safari – to see lions, elephants and, yes, rhinos.
