Southern White Rhinoceros

November 12, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I am inspired to do my Zoo Safari and shoot threatened and endangered species.  I can't resist shooting all animal, even if they are not threatened.  The Southern White Rhino is one such animal.  However, as I researched the White Rhino I learned that its status, while not threatened, is considered near threatened.  The Southern White Rhino is the least threatened of all the rhinoceroses.  They are mostly threatened by habitat loss, continuous poaching in recent years and the high illegal demand for rhino horn for commercial purposes.  White rhinos will breed in captivity, and zoos cooperate to maintain genetic diversity of the captive-bred animals.
