    How can you commend these guys? How can hanging a Rhino from the bottom of helicopter comfort any of you?!

      Perhaps you should actually watch the video? It’s all about a number of people and organizations working together to help preserve a beautiful animal.

      Its not to comfort us, its to help the Rhino’s and give them a future as an animal. Watch the video its all explained.

    Man! that must feel like alien abduction for them ;)

    What a great story. I’m not sure if hanging them the way they do is the best way to transport these large animals but I understand their cause and support it….Just wish there was a better way to transport.

    With all the bokeh, was this DSLR work? Anyone know?

    Big up the ZA homeland. And some stunning visuals.

    @John – you got a better suggestion than the idea arrived at by all these experts with a helluva lot of years of experience doing this thing? Just wondering.

      Totally, these guys havent just stepped on South African soil… they know what they are doing, Rhino are extremely durable animals… its their horns that make them vulnerable due to the dumb asses that seem to think they possess some magical stimulant…???

      Big up to this project and the creatives involved… Eastern Cape is my home region! Thanks for caring for South African wildlife!

    This is excellent, and raises awareness to the plight of these magnificent beasts. I feel proud to have seen these wonderful creatures in the wild in my own country

    Just wow. Masterfully shot and told, so thanks so much for sharing. I have a little tear in my eye now.

    Hey, i realy like the shots but everybody who thinks
    wwf is “THE environmental orgeanisation” is wrong.
    For more information go to wikipedia or watch
    “silence of pandas”.

    some great images. agree that the way they transport them doesnt look good but i assume its a safe way to transport them. always find it shocking to see that a lot of animals are just killed for their fur or in this case their horns. wildlife is always amazing. watching ‘Whale Wars’ on documentry channel and its shocking to see those huge animals getting killed knowing there aren’t many out there anymore.

    i think us as photographers and filmmakers have some power to show the world the beauty as well as the cruelty of hunters to hopefully change the world a bit.

    Really powerful imagery and great use for storytelling. A bit heavy on the out-of-focus/lensbaby look for me though — I felt like it started distracting from the story after the 3rd or 4th time.

    Great looking weblog. Precisely what theme are you currently making use of?

    Really interesting, not something you see everyday. Flying upside down rhinos :P

    These shots are freakin’ amazing.

  17. Johann Neethling December 29, 2011 at 1:03 am #

    Thanks for posting this video. Hoping it’ll create some worldwide awareness of rhino conservation in South Africa! With the poachings going on here and ever increasing, it’s a battle that is getting out of hand and making the rhino furure looking dim.
    I’d say, we need all the help we gan get here!

    I never thought that you can transport a rhino with a helicopter.. Thanks for sharing that video

    I just saw a video made by The Piano Guys where they helicoptered a baby grand piano + cello + amazing singer onto a stunning cliff and put on a concert. The video is unbelievable, I can’t wait for their behind the scenes video to come out. It reminded me of the flying rhinos!
