Game in Transit- A history of the Rhino in South Australia


This book by long time Rhino admirer Geoff Brooks , is the story of the Rhinos brought to South Australia since the first, MR Rhini, in 1886.

The curious looking animals brought to Monarto Safari Park today re some of the remaining few of a species that is facing extinction due to poaching. They are no longer anonymous specimens kept merely for display but valuable individuals, vital to the survival of their species. All have travelled from overseas and, to keep their bloodline fresh and strong, many will eventually go elsewhere. It is no longer possible to keep Rhino’s in isolation. They have become a species always in transit.
