South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Taiwan zoo sending white rhino to Japan to find mate under programme to save species” – below is their description.
Zookeepers at the Leofoo Safari Park at Hsinchu in northern Taiwan are preparing one of their southern white rhinos for journey to Japan, where it is hoped she will find a mate and settle. Five-year-old Emma will become the first rhino sent abroad from Taiwan for breeding under an initiative meant to widen the gene pool of Asia’s captive-bred white rhinos. Originally from southern Africa, the threatened species is targeted by poachers who hunt them for their horns. Only about 18,000 of the animals remain in the world, according to the animal conservation group Save the Rhino.

The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
