ENDANGERED SPECIES - Rhinoceros

This challenge closed about 7 years ago.

The Challenge

The Rhino, a creature that looks as tough as anything that the military can produce, a creature that has been on this earth for around 60 millions years but despite its tough exterior all 5 species of Rhino are close to extinction. Since the 1970’s almost half of the worlds population of Rhino have disappeared and yet again we are back to the same old story and that is Poaching.

If you would like further information on how to help these mysterious gentle giants (although I wouldn’t advice approaching one) please click here Rhino Info

For this challenge you can enter images taken in zoo’s and wildlife parks but ensure that we cannot see any fencing or human made objects.
