Black rhinos are critically endangered, but Zoo Atlanta is working to help save them! These amazing animals are hunted for their horns (which, fun fact, are made of the same keratin as our nails and hair). Poaching, combined with habitat loss, has led rhino populations to dwindle.
However, zoos like Zoo Atlanta are fighting for endangered rhinos. On their website, you can read about their work against poaching, and you can read all about why black rhinos are special. Learning about animals is the first step to protecting them, and curiosity can inspire us to join in the fight. Check out Zoo Atlanta’s black rhino photo gallery and see for yourself why these animals are worth saving!
