Artist's Description

Prehistoric in appearance and intriguing in behaviour, rhinoceros in the late 20th century joined the ranks of the most critically endangered animals in the world, they play an important role in ecosystems by serving as “landscape architects” of their habitat. Rhinos are seed dispersers, consuming various plants and then, as inadvertent gardeners, distributing their seeds throughout their range. Since it can take a rhino more than three days to digest a meal, seeds can be transported a significant distance before they are deposited in droppings.
But the existence of this majestic species is increasingly threatened, due primarily to poaching and habitat loss. WWF is directing innovative conservation efforts in Asia and Africa that have already produced results and promise a more secure future for the rhino. WWF
