The Rhino’s Race Against Time
Human interaction is a huge part of our day-to-day life, but imagine if you were one the last humans on this planet. This has become an ominous truth for certain species of African Rhino’s. A decade long decimation of the Black Rhinoceros saw the population drop from around 70,000 to as few as 2,500 during the 1970s’. Whereas, there only 3 Northern White Rhinos roaming the earth today.
