Rhinos have existed on earth for more than 50 million years, let's not end the line by poaching! Help share the truth: Rhino horn has no medicinal value!

Hi Kenneth. You have an awesome series of Rhinos here. Please feel free to join our Rhinos of the World mission and help to raise awareness for the Rhino's plight. Please remember not to add the exact co ordinates.

Incredable animal, its extinction is an example of how humans and our infinite ignorance, can destroy our own planet.

I am so glad we got to see some in the Mabula preserve. A Mother with a grown whinning son and a new baby rhino.The grown son had not yet accepted that his Mother needed to move on.

Spotted your black rhino in Norongora Crater Oct 12, 2011. My shot has it walking away from us. Note that my personal photo of a reposing cheetah came from Norongora Crater too.

This is a sad news indeed and human is responsible for this and all environment destruction. One day our mother planet (earth) will get the revenge of all these destruction from mankind. I hope before that day the humans will learn that this world is not only for them.

A sad and ignominious end to a magnificent animal. Another of the last great mammals of our era has slipped away. How many more?
