It's World Rhino Day!

Let’s celebrate these magnificent creatures. Here are five fascinating facts about Rhino’s.

  1. Did you know that there are five species of Rhino in the world?
  2. They can weigh over 3 tonnes.
  3. Rhino horns are made of the same stuff as our fingernails.
  4. These magnificent creatures have poor vision, so it’s essential to approach them carefully.
  5. But perhaps the most surprising fact about rhinos is how they communicate – through honks, sneezes, and even poo! Rhinos are known to leave messages for one another in their droppings, which they scatter around their territories to signal their presence and territorial boundaries.

Sadly, poaching threatens rhinos. Over 7,100 Rhinos have been killed in the last decade. If we don’t act now, these fantastic animals could disappear from our planet forever. The world’s estimated total population of rhinos is less than 27,000 individual animals, and we need to work together to protect them and their habitat.
