WWF-Canon Pic of the Week - Rhinos in crisis

A female white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) with her calf.


Rhinos are in crisis. Since the beginning of 2012, 339 rhinos have been killed by poachers in South Africa. 201 of these were in Kruger National Park. Overall rhino poaching has increased over 3000% since 2007. Three out of the five rhino species are listed as Critically Endangered.
