Game in transit 2017

Description: Brooks, G., 2017. Game in transit: a history of the rhino in South Australia. Mile End (South Australia), Wakefield Press, pp. i-xiv, 1-145

This book, by longtime rhino admirer and carer 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 Zoo today are 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 rhinos in isolation. They have become a species always in transit.
