    Taiwan white rhino Emma arrives in Japan (2021/06/10)

    A white rhinoceros from Taiwan has arrived safely at her new home in Japan. Emma, a female white rhinoceros from Leofoo Village Theme Park, was sent to Japan's Tobu Zoo as part of a conservation breeding program. This was the first time a large endangered animal was shipped out successfully from Taiwan. For zookeepers at her old home in Hsinchu, saying goodbye was anything but easy. Let's hear from them.

    Huang Tzu-huan
    Zookeeper
    I didn’t know that large animals like her could be trained to be so affectionate and obedient. And now, after training her, we’ve had to send her to abroad. It was very hard to say goodbye.

    Lee Yi-tsun
    Zookeeper
    After spreading mud all over herself, she covered me in mud too. She was all caked in mud when she came over to rub up against me. I hope that she’ll be safe and healthy there.

    Emma was given a mud bath to calm her nerves a day before her departure. She checked in at Taoyuan's airport in the early morning of Tuesday, for a 16-hour journey to Tobu Zoo, north of Tokyo. With only 18,000 white rhinos left in the world, zookeepers hope she'll help the population recover further.

    白犀牛艾瑪遠嫁日本 創大型瀕危動物輸出首例

    正當疫情緊張,各國交流減少之際,六福村野生動物園的白犀牛艾瑪,平安抵達日本的東武動物公園。這場台日聯姻,也創下台灣首例大型瀕危動物輸出成功的案例。艾瑪前往日本,也讓保育員充滿不捨。

    [[動物園管理部保育員 黃子桓]]
    “我從來不知道這麼大隻的動物,可以訓練到這麼親人、這麼聽話,訓練完後要把牠送到其他國家去,心中滿多不捨。”

    [[動物園管理部保育員 李義村]]
    “抹完泥巴後,牠抹完後,換牠幫我抹,全身泥巴就來磨蹭你。希望送出去能平平安安健健康康。”

    艾瑪在出發的前一天,不安地走動,動保員為牠抹上泥巴,舒緩心情。週二凌晨送到桃園機場,經過16小時長途跋涉,終於來到日本東武動物公園的新家。全球白犀牛,只剩1.8萬隻,透過聯姻,希望讓全球犀牛血緣更豐富化。
