A Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden videographer documented the journey of the last Sumatran rhino in the Western Hemisphere as it traveled to the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Indonesia.
Harry the Sumantran rhino began his trek on Oct. 30 in Cincinnati, eventually landing in Kakarta, Indonesia 53 hours later.
“It was one of the biggest senses of relief I think I’ve ever had in my life. It was like, 'We made it. We’re done,'" said Cincinnati Zoo veterinarian Jenny Nolman, who accompanied Harry on his historic travels. "This enormous journey is over and he looks great! It was a very happy moment.”
The emotional journey and final farewell of Harry was captured by zoo videographer Pat Story.
The move means the culmination of the zoo’s groundbreaking captive rhino breeding program. Outside of Indonesia, Cincinnati is the only place in the world that has succeeded in breeding Sumatran rhino in the last century.
