Artist's Description

This Rhino was photographed beside a waterhole in Etosha National Park, Namibia.
THE BLACK RHINO IS THE FASTEST DISAPPEARING LAND MAMMAL.
The White Rhino is less endangered and differs in being larger with a wide flat lip and a better temper than the Black Rhino.
They are hunted for their horns which are used in chinese medicine and to make decorative dagger handles. Loss of habitat and human disturbance adds to their plight.
Just to make a point, when I left school and started work in the 1960’s there were about 100,000 Black Rhinos in the wild. Now there are about 3600 – a 96% population crash well within my lifetime leaves me wondering what will be left for our children & grandchildren.
