World Rhino Day

In case you didn’t know Rhinos have a day set aside for them. September the 22nd is World Rhino Day and in honor of this special day, me and a couple of friends have written and produced this video which is already being shared by some of the leading advocates for the species.

Why bother spending your free time and money making this you might ask? Well I’d answer that rhinos are being slaughtered for their horns, which are used in Chinese medicines as a cure-all for everything from fever to gout.

The result is that many species of rhino are in danger of becoming functionally extinct. This means that population of breeding individuals will not be able to sustain itself due to inbreeding depression.

So if you care about one of the world’s most distinctive animal species watch and share this video.
