  • Today is World Rhino Day where we celebrate all five species, including the black and white rhino from Africa, the greater one-horned rhino from India, the Sumatran rhino and the Javan rhino. All of these species are endangered now as a result of illegal trade in rhino horn from poaching. The rhinos we have in Namibia need our protection. But this comes at a massive cost - both economically and physically (where anti-poaching teams are harmed on the ground). Our aim is to raise awareness and pull all the resources we have to ensure these species do not become extinct. Help us save the rhino by spreading the word and sharing this post. - - #WorldRhinoDay #SaveTheRhino #StopPoaching #Trafficking #Africa #Endangered #AnimalRights #RhinoHornIsNotMedicine #TeamRhino
