Happy World Rhino Day!
Rhinos are among the most endangered creatures in the world with the northern white rhino subspecies only remaining in existence thanks to its protected environment. It is devastating to think we may have seen the last ever image of a northern white rhino calf, when Fatu was born in captivity in 2000. As the only remaining male northern white rhinos are related to her, she will not be able to safely reproduce.
So what can you do to protect the other species of rhino that still have a chance? Go and visit them in the wild with a sustainable tour operator!
Taking part in sustainable safaris is not only a fantastic experience but it also puts money directly into the parks and reserves that are striving to protect these endangered animals.
Conservationists and anti-poaching teams worldwide are working tirelessly to save these creatures, from dehorning them as a preventative measure against poaching attacks, to protecting habitats and educating locals.
