The Rhino, officially Rhinoceros, is one of the six surviving species of odd-toed ungulates in the family Rhinocerotidae of the Perissodactyla and are part of the big named mega fauna.
The Black Rhino and the White Rhino are native to Africa, while the Indian Rhino, Sumatran Rhino and the Javan Rhino occur in Asia. The rhino horn is made of keratin, the same material as in hair, it's thought to be an aphrodisiac and a cure for pretty much everything in traditional Chinese medicine. The horn is also used for dagger handles in Yemen and Oman.
Because of this, rhino horn is very valuable and illegal poaching has caused rhino numbers to drop rapidly. Several subspecies like the Northern White Rhino and the Eastern Black Rhino have been declared extinct in recent years, although some may survive in remote regions.
Rhinos are under extreme threat worldwide. It is mainly due to illegal poaching to source rhino horn. Kevin Pietersen's passion for batting is only exceeded by his passion for rhino conservation. The mission is to save rhinos from extinction. We are committed to rescue abandoned, injured, and orphaned rhinos and to rehabilitate them wherever possible. Through various organizations we enlist the help of veterinarians, nutritionists, ecologists, and other specialists, to ensure the successful rehabilitation and release of these animals.
