160921 1 1 Not Another Dodo

It’s happened time and again throughout history; humans have either consumed a species into extinction or stood by and let it happen.

But this time it’s different, or we hope it will be. The world is well aware of the threat faced by rhinos and people are standing up everywhere to protect the increasingly few that remain. Here in the Amboseli ecosytem Big Life, in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), is working to protect a small population of critically endangered, wild (unfenced) Eastern black rhino. Through financial support from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Chester Zoo, Save the Rhino International, Zoological Society of London, and others, we provide round the clock security for this globally significant population.

Today is World Rhino Day and so please spare a thought for this species that is fighting for its survival, and for the rangers who have dedicated their lives to protecting these unique creatures.
