Rhinos. One of the oldest living mammals on earth. Instantly recognisable. Undeniably iconic. Surprisingly charismatic and utterly irreplaceable.
Their role in the ecosystem is unsurpassed. Rhinos are nature's environmental engineers. As well as shaping landscape topography through grazing, wallowing, and defecating, they also increase biodiversity. The changes they make ensure the survival of countless other species of flora and fauna. Lose rhinos and we risk losing other species too.
Our unprecedented activities have had a profound impact on rhinos and their habitats, contributing to the decline of rhino populations. Environmental pressures and illegal wildlife trade are threatening rhinos' survival, putting this magnificent, sentient animal at risk.
If rhino populations continue to decline at the same rate as they have in the past decade, rhinos could be extinct in the wild by 2032.
