2013: Namibia will airlift 10 rhinoceros and five elephants to Cuba in September, concluding a massive Translocation project of 135 animals taken from its national parks, the environment ministry said Wednesday. The 15 animals will be captured from the Etosha National Park in northern Namibia—one of the country\'s major tourist attractions—plus a nearby smaller game reserve, the Waterberg Plateau, environment and tourism deputy-minister Pohamba Shifeta told AFP.

The project, dubbed "Noah\'s Ark II", fulfills a promise to the Cuban government in 2009 during a visit to Namibia by the country\'s president, Raul Castro.
