September 22nd is just around the corner, a day that rhino enthusiasts around the world commit to the survival of these threatened creatures. Since members of the rhinoceros family first appeared on the evolutionary scene about 40 million years ago, more than 60 species have come and gone.
“Five Rhino Species Forever” is the motto of World Rhino Day. Granted, “Forever” is a very long time, but you get the point. No one wants to witness any of the world’s five living rhino species follow the dodo, the dinosaurs or the rhinos of yesteryear down the path to extinction.
Join in the effort to save white, black, greater one-horned, Sumatran and Javan rhinos!
