Endangered black rhino swapping North Yorkshire for Africa

An endangered rhino who has spent all her life in captivity is beginning a year-long journey which will see her released into the wild.

Three-year-old Olmoti is moving from Flamingo Land in Malton, North Yorkshire to a new home in the Akagera National Park in Rwanda.

The move is part of the zoo's conservation project to help secure the long-term future of the Eastern black rhino population, which is under threat.
