More About This episode

It's the busiest week of the year at the Black Rhino Protection Centre. Apson, a young female rhino, has wandered beyond the sanctuary's boundary into the danger zone, where poachers roam. Meanwhile, Kango, the park's resident male, has reached the age of maturity. Before Apson can be returned to safety, the park's staff must capture Kango and release him back into the wild. Black rhinos are highly endangered, so the team must do whatever they can to ensure the safety of both.
