Black rhinos are old… like old, old… as in their species is fifty million years old making them the oldest living mammals in the world!
Sightings of Black rhinos used to be extremely common, however the introduction of European settlers obliterated their population. They were relentlessly hunted for their horns and within two decades they were on the brink of extinction.
Efforts have been made to bring their numbers back since 1992, and they’ve made an incredible comeback – but there’s still lots that needs to be done!
We’re working with Save the Rhino International
, who are an amazing organisation working really hard to take care of Black rhinos, protecting them from poachers and making sure their population can grow.
