Chahinkapa Zoo Soon to be Home to Southern White Rhinos

Chahinkapa Zoo in Wahpeton announced they will soon be home to two male four year old southern white rhinos. They are expected to arrive in early May and this is part of a conservation effort that Chahinkapa Zoo has been a part of. Zoo director Kathy Dickman tells KBMW news they have been working on the rhino project and education for some years. The rhinos will be kept inside under quarantine to start but the public will be able to view the rhinos during this quarantine period. After the quarantine period is finished the rhinos will be housed in the existing African Habitat that is home to the zoo’s zebras. Chahinkapa zoo is set to open April 28th.
