According to vets and caretakers at Vinpearl Safari, the birth rate of African white rhinos is often very low in conservation parks, due to potential risks during pregnancy. Meanwhile, the environment and care are also required at a very high level for smooth pregnancy and labor process. For pairing and mating of rhinos, experts are required to have exceptional technique and ability to support for the animals mentally.
