Still need to take moments of reflection to realise how lucky I am for my co-workers to be rhinos when things feel tough. Both greater one-horned rhinos and southern white rhinos are two species that are unlucky however, with a ridiculous belief still prevailing that their horns cure cancer, hangovers etc. Rhino horn is made from keratin, aka your fingernails & toenails. Stop eating toenails. Start educating about the poaching threats they face. #endextinction#greateronehornedrhino#southernwhiterhino#conservation#wildlife#nature#animals#wildlifephotography#naturephotography#environment#wildlifeconservation#safari#ig#adventure#naturelovers#earth#restoration#biodiversity#sandiegosafaripark#worldwildlifefund#fightforyourworld

Up close, yet not that close! 😂 A number of years back, there was a case in Africa when two tourists listened to the tour guide, who waved them to move closer to the wild rhino in order to take a photo with it. They got the photo alright, yet shortly after, the rhino charged and the horn pierced right through the poor lady. Moral of the story is, wild animals are wild, and stupid tour guides do exist! If something sounds like a really stupid idea, then it probably is! Unless you raised the rhino or lion or tiger from birth, these magnificent creatures are naturally wild and are simply being themselves if you get in their way... . . . . . #whiterhino#southernwhiterhino#rhinoceros#whiterhinoceros#unicorn#africanwildlife#wildlife#animals#animal#animalconservation#savetherhino#savetherhinos#conservation#werribee#travelogue#travelblog#traveling#traveldiary#australia

It was great to see the Southern White Rhino roaming the green pastures and free from danger! In the wild, this Rhino’s beautiful horn would mean it’s a prized target for poachers. Its closely related counterpart, the Northern White Rhino, has already become extinct. How humans can threaten the existence of such an amazing beast, I do not know. Let’s hope that science makes progress in the next few years and stores the DNA of all of earth’s animals before they go extinct, and hopefully one day, when humans come to their senses, they will resurrect all of our extinct and soon to be extinct species, and restore the earth’s biodiversity . . . . . #rhinoceros#rhinocerous#rhino#rhinos#southernwhiterhino#southernwhiterhinoceros#whiterhino#northernwhiterhinos#northernwhiterhino#threatenedspecies#endangered#conservation#poaching#horns#protection#education#animalkingdom#biodiversity#preservation#travelphotography#instawildlife#instadaily#africanwildlife#animalkingdom#africanwildlife#werribee#australia

One of only 500 first release bottles sits now on my shelf. *KIFARU GIN* by @amblesidedistillers A flashback of last week's GinPalooza. A superior gin supporting a great cause. DISTILLED IN SUPPORT OF THE RHINOS Every drop of this gin has been crafted with a rhino-sized vision in mind. Each bottle helps Zoos SA bring threatened Southern White Rhinos to Monarto Zoo where they’ll be safe from poachers. Inspired by native botanicals from Monarto Zoo lands, this complex beauty gets its gusto from the rich flavours of the herbaceous Monarto Mintbush, delicately matched with deep notes of coffee, chocolate and hazelnut from roasted Wattleseed. An aromatic gin celebrating 15 finely balanced botanicals. Savour straight, on the rocks or with a dash of tonic, knowing every sip is helping build Australia’s largest rhino sanctuary. #gin#ginandtonic#gintonic#gandt#gnt#australiangin#gintasting#ginlove#ginlovers#ginlover#ginoclock#gintime#cheers#drinking#drinks#cocktail#cocktails#sydney#rhino#southernwhiterhino#rhinopreservation#monartozoo@zoossa@zoos_sa

Here’s a fun #AnimalFact for you: #Rhino horn is made of a bunch of small fibers. (Swipe ➡️➡️➡️ to see a close-up of the horn - you can see the fibers.) And all of those fibers are made of keratin. Your hair is also fibers, made of keratin😮 So rhino horn is just hair! Therefore, we know there is no medicinal value to rhino horn, just like there is no medicinal value in hair!

The San Antonio Zoo @sanantoniozoo will reopen its rhinoceros habitat on March 2. They recently welcomed Nyota and Ophelia to the enclosure, which is closed off for now as the Southern white rhinos get acquainted. The zoo also hosts this monumental sculpture, “The Last Three,” by @gillieandmarcart, commemorating the last three Northern white rhinos on earth—and now there are just two. We are looking forward to seeing the exhibit after the unveiling on Saturday (9 am members, 10 am non-members) and are proud of the San Antonio Zoo’s efforts to support conservation. . . . #sanantoniozoo#thelastthree#southernwhiterhino#alamocreatives#alamocitymoms#satxbloggers#visitsanantonio#brackenridgepark#rhino#savetherhino

Tokens can be purchased for $1 at the Zoo's admission booth or at Twiga Terrace, and all proceeds will go toward the International Rhino Foundation! And we’re sorry to admit, but Rhino McRhinoface isn’t one of the name options. #SouthernWhiteRhino#FresnoChaffeeZoo

Well done to everyone who guessed the #SouthernWhiteRhino in #GuessTheSpecies! The name 'White' Rhino comes from the #Afrikaans word “weit”, which means wide - referring to their muzzle! While this #rhino is a #conservation success story and was brought back from the brink of #extinction, there has been a surge in poaching for their horns, particularly in South Africa.

I love Rhinos, but when ever i google photos i just get sad. They are these huge amazing creatures and we are killing them off. this started as a "hay i want to paint a rhino,"then i was joking with my parents saying they are unicorns and then i made this connection. There was this movie i loved to watch when i was little called "the last unicorn" and i really just watched it for the drunk skeleton.. but in it there was one last unicorn because some king had trapped them all out of this greed that he wanted to control the beauty of the world. Well, we humans hunt rhinos for their horns, carve them into figurines so they can sit on the wall or be used as "medicine" like what are you going to do with it? eat it? we are that greedy king who trapped all the rhinos. There are two northern white rhinos left, the last male died and its only two sisters. there will be no magical journey to save the other whites from an angry red bull and king. but im hopeful their cousins the Southern white Rhinos can push through. I got to meet the three housed at Henry Doorly Zoo and they are amazing. I have fallen in love with them, they are so sweet and don't deserve what they get out in the wild. i no longer want to think of the last unicorn when i see a white rhino, or any rhino at that. Sorry for the lengthy discription I just get so mad about these things. But even though I was mad when painting this, I really enjoyed it. I looked up a photo of the last unicorn and refrenced the art style for this in a symbolic way. I didnt get it quite right but i think its close enough. Finding a font to match the movie poster even slightly was a pain. So thats the closest i got to it. Hope you like it as much as I do. #whiterhino#thelastunicorn#southernwhiterhino#rhino#rhinoart#rhinopainting#acrylicart#acrylicpainting#acrylic#savetherhinos

He was absolutely amazing and it was just such a perfect experience. It’s times like these when I’m so thankful mental health did not get the best of me and I beat my depression. Had I succeeded I would never be able to do any of the amazing things I get to do now!

My favourite news story of the week! 📰 - - 🌍South Africa has made significant improvements in the fight against rhino poaching 😊 It was reported that in 2018 there was 259 FEWER rhinos killed than in the year before. According to environmental affairs minister Nomvula Mokonyane‚ there were 769 rhino poaching incidents in 2018. In 2017‚ 1‚028 rhinos were killed for their horns🦏 This was the third consecutive year that South Africa had seen a decline in rhino poaching 👏 Amazing news right! Let's continue to fight against poaching 💪 #DontLetThemDisappear#WorthMoreAlive#SaveOurWildPlaces#endextinction
