Thirteen elephants, three of them baby elephants, are to be transported in a crate in a large plane with the help of South African experts. The awareness of the animals will be open during the flight.
“This is a very exciting project and it really is a first of its kind in the world,” Damien Aspinal, President of the Aspinal Foundation, said in a press release.
