Leofoo Works with Tobu Railway to Transport Emma the Rhino to Japan

A Series of Events to “Farewell Emma” Starts Today! All the People in Taiwan are Invited to Send Their Wishes

Wild rhinos are critically endangered due largely to poaching. To raise awareness on the issue of rhinos’ survival, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has dedicated September 22 as the “World Rhino Day.” Long concerned about conservation of rhinos, Leofoo Tourism Group and Chuang Foo Foundation started the annual “Red Noses Protect Rhinos” event in 2017, in sync with global conservation efforts on every September 22. The event has grown since, attracting more than 10,000 people last year. This year, the group further invited Tobu Railway from Japan to join the global endeavor to protect rhinos and to promote the annual event as a collaborative celebration between Taiwan and Japan. Leofoo Tourism Group and Tobu Railway held a joint press conference today (September 22), highlighting the signing on an agreement board by Lulu Chuang, chairperson of Leofoo Tourism Group, Sean Chuang, chairperson of Chuang Foo Foundation, and Masashi Hayano, president of Tobu Railway Co., LTD. Taipei Branch. The three signatories then pressed the airplane engine to signify the launch of the project as the largest to export an endangered animal in Taiwan history. Emma, Leofoo’s female rhino, will fly from Taiwan as far as to Japan in bearing the heavy responsibility to recover her population.

   Lulu Chuang, chairperson of Leofoo Tourism Group, commented in her speech: “Since the inception of Leofoo Tourism Group half a century ago, Leofoo has been the platform, promoting sustainable environment development and worldwide animal protection. Leofoo Safari Park is the largest wildlife zoo in Taiwan as well as the largest Rhino breeding base in Asia. As rhinos face worldwide endangerment due to poaching, Leofoo Tourism Group and Chuang Foo Foundation continue our collaborated efforts to rhinos conservation and our contributions to rhino population recovery. Annually, we hold the “Red Noses Protect Rhinos” event on September 22, the World Rhino Day, to call for all to voice their support for rhinos’ survival. This year, I am pleased to cooperate with Tobu Railway of Japan to arrange for our girl, Emma, a female white rhino, to be sent off to Tobu Zoo of Japan to help improve rhino genetic diversity. This exportation is only a beginning. We hope many more countries will join the efforts in the future. Leofoo is gladly to share our expertise in rhino breeding and diversification to bring hopes for rhino’s survival worldwide.

Sean Chuang, chairperson of Chuang Foo Foundation, remarked: “Chuang Foo Foundation has long been concerned about endangered animals worldwide. When Leofoo Safari Park opened in 1979, we imported 8 white rhinos from Africa and prepared the most natural environment possible for them to reproduce at ease. Lately we have newborn babies every year and Leofoo Village is now a home to 23 white rhinos, making it the largest rhino recovery base in Asia. For this year, we are honored to collaborate with Tobu Railway and Tobu Zoo in Japan in implementing the largest project to export endangered animal in Taiwan history. Our baby girl rhino Emma will be transferred to Japan and mate with their male rhinos in hopes to achieve a steady growth of rhino population. For Leofoo, which has been devoted to recovering rhino population for decades, this is a major milestone.”

Kouichi Sekiguchi, Director Senior Managing Executive Officer of Tobu Railway, also mentioned through a video clip: “Tobu Railway has long received support, care, and love from all quarters in Taiwan. Today we are pleased and honored to be invited by Leofoo Tourism Group in response to World Rhino Day of September 22, to witness the establishment of partnership between Leofoo Village Theme Park and Tobu Zoo for protecting white rhinos as well as for pleading for the right to life for endangered animals around the world. This collaboration will have lasting impact on the touristic exchange between Taiwan and Japan, and we hope for better future development on both sides. Tobu Railway also looks forward to more profound communication with Leofoo Tourism Group in the future for mutual assistance and development.”

  • Pride of Taiwan! Leofoo’s outstanding achievement in recovering rhino population has been attracting local and foreign experts and scholars who wish to learn from its experience
  • Holding events for 4 consecutive years in response to World Rhino Day on September 22 to appeal for the right to life of endangered rhinos

  Chuang Foo Foundation has long been devoted to rhino population recovery. Currently there are 23 white rhinos living at Leofoo Village, which is an extraordinary achievement standing out in Asia. In recent years, the foundation is actively seeking international cooperation, sending staff to South Africa in 2015 and 2016 to care for the primary habitat of rhinos and sign a letter of intent for cooperation with a local rhino sanctuary, Care for Wild. Moreover, the foundation held workshops in Leofoo Village for two consecutive years on assisted reproduction technologies for rhinos. The workshop invited Animal experts from Germany, the USA, Thailand, China, Vietnam, Japan, and Singapore among other countries, to share with them the experience in rhino conservation in Taiwan. Leofoo Tourism Group has also been promoting the high purpose to conserve rhinos among Taiwanese people in various ways including the world’s one-of-a-kind “Sudan Rhino Bus” as well as guided tours led by rhino keepers. With a purpose to raise public awareness about and gain support for rhino conservation, activities include taking people to in-depth tours around rhino exhibitions, and interacting with them by brushing their backs. In addition, Leofoo has held an event, “Red Noses Protect Rhinos,” for four consecutive years in response to the World Rhino Day on September 22. The act of “painting red on nose” symbolizes a poached rhino bleeding to death from the incurable grievous wound inflicted as poachers dig and take off its horn, so to gather supporters for the right to life of endangered rhinos. The event in 2017 attracted 3,000 participants who formed a rhino silhouette in mass choreography to show Taiwan to the world. In 2018 it featured treasure hunt in mud in which people rolled themselves like rhinos, to assert right to life of rhinos. The 2019 event gathered famous animals as well as athletic celebrities from all around Taiwan for a sports day, calling for more than 10,000 people who voiced their support for rhinos.

  • Farewell Emma! Leofoo Village launches its first “Hello Baby Girl Rhino!” event
  • Animal lovers, book now! Stay at Leofoo Resort on specified plan for a complimentary limited paper craft of baby girl rhino

  After announcing the largest project to export endangered animal in Taiwan history on September 22 of this year, Leofoo Tourism Group will start a series of events during the preparation period for the female rhino’s transport. Starting from September 25, guests who stay at Leofoo Resort Guanshi on “The Sudan Rhino Bus Exploration” Room Plan will receive a DIY kit of “Farewell Baby Girl Emma the Rhino Limited Edition Paper Craft” for free, so they can not only learn about rhinos while folding and pasting paper but also create their own mini edition Emma. The number of the gift is limited. Furthermore, from now until November 30, visitors can join the “Hello Baby Girl Rhino!” event at Leofoo Village, to observe Emma’s hobby through her daily life. You will discover that she likes taking mud bath and loves eating alfalfa sprouts clumps, or she must take strolls after meals to stay fit! Anyone will fall in love with Emma at first sight and wish her the best on her transfer overseas.
