All species of Rhinoceros are either ENDANGERED or CRITICALLY ENDANGERED, but none is on its last legs like the Northern White. These magnificent beasts once roamed vast territories in sub-Saharan Africa, but over the last 100 years they have been pushed to the brink of extinction by Trophy Hunting, poaching and loss of habitat.
Their population in the wild was reduced from 500 in the 1970's down to just four by the mid 2000's. Unfortunately, not even these last four could find protection; they have vanished and it is believed poachers got to them as well. There are now ONLY THREE left in the world, all in captivity and all in old age.. WHAT HAVE WE DONE
