Rhinoceroses: The Urgency of Conservation Efforts

Among the Big Five, the rhinoceros stands as a symbol of urgent conservation needs. Poaching for their horns has pushed these magnificent creatures to the brink of extinction.

Rhinoceroses, both black and white species, are solitary creatures known for their immense size and prehistoric appearance.
