African Black Rhino: Some Eye-Opening Facts (Infographic)

What comes to mind when you think of a rhino? A large, bad tempered prehistoric looking creature? To some point that might be true, especially considering rhinos have wandered the earth for over 50 million years, yet the rhinos we see today are vastly different to those prehistoric beasts. They have evolved, lived for some time, faded into extinction, and recently been the target of human greed and a commercial demand for poaching.

In our latest infographic we provide some eye-opening facts about the African black rhino, and explain how you can get involved and make a difference to its status.
