During the event, Thu Minh took over the patronage of the transport of rhino female Eliska from ZOO Dvur Kralove to Mkomazi National Park in Tanzania. ZOO Dvur Kralove is world-wide known for their breeding successes of rhinos and conservation activities. Eliska is the fourth black rhino to be transported from the zoo back home to Africa to support a local rhino population. Previously transported rhinos to Tanzania have successfully bred already.
