Happy World Rhino Day!

Touch a rhino. Look into a rhinos eyes. Talk to a rhino and have them respond to you.

Do this and I promise you will fight for them too.

Today is the 3rd Annual World Rhino Day - create some awareness and remember - Rhino horn is NOT medicine, it's keratin just like your fingernails.

Some rhino population stats for you:

  • Javan rhino - fewer than 50
  • Vietnamese Javan rhino (extinct 2010)
  • Sumatran rhino - fewer than 200
  • Borneo rhino - perhaps 30
  • Greater one-horned rhino - 2,949
  • Black rhino - 4,860
  • Southern White rhino - 20,600
  • Northern White rhino - 7 (these will be extinct within the next 20 years)
