Folly Farm rhinos

Folly Farm rhinos.We are happy to share this video and photos of the new rhinos in Wales at Folly Farm in Pembrokeshire done by our sister company Pembrokeshire Photography whe had exclusive access to the rhino enclosure before, during and after the arrival of Manyara and Nkosi the rare Eastern black rhinos.This is a vital conservation project for these endangered animals.

There are thought to be fewer than 650 eastern black rhinos left in the wild and just 66 in zoos across Europe.

Folly Farm will be only the sixth zoo in the UK to hold this critically endangered species. The IUCN Red List categorises eastern black rhinos as critically endangered and they will be the 16th species to be on the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme, of which Folly Farm is an active member.
