Artist's Description

This was taken at the Cincinnati Zoo in Ohio.

In the nineteenth and early twentieth century, the Indian Rhinoceros was hunted relentlessly until in 1910, officials aware of the plumeting numbers prohibited rhino hunting. Nearly gone by the early 1900’s when only approximately only 100 remained the rhino has had a successful increase in numbers. While numbers now are 2500+ the species is still endangered. Killed mainly for its single horn which is believed by some cultures in East Asia to be useful for healing and potency. It is still used today in Chinese medicines. Habitat loss is also a daily issue. With help from the WWF the Indian and Nepalese governments continue to work toward Indian Rhino conservation.
