There are only 6 Northern White Rhinos left on our planet. One is a male. They are all being guarded by rangers, and the horns have been removed so there is no point for poachers to kill them. I do not understand why our species is so cruel to every other species... There is evidence now that the Black Rhino is "officially" extinct in the wild. Humans seem to think we are special, somehow "above" the other life on our planet. If things continue the way they are going, in the next 50 years we will have no reefs, no apex predators in the ocean which will result in very few fish, no rhinos, no sharks, and water rising everywhere. At that point will we wise up? I hope we wise up much sooner, because at that point it will be too late. Conservation means saving our own species...once we ruin all of the ecosystems that support life on this planet, we won't last long, either. Today's photographs are of animals headed toward extinction. Let's not let it happen. Everyone....listen to Jane Goodall:
"If all of us would go through our lives thinking about the little choices we make each day as to what we buy, what we eat, what we wear – and how those choices might impact the environment, might impact child slave labor in other countries, might impact cruelty towards animals, we start making small changes... Billions of small changes around the world can lead to the kind of change we need if we care about future generations." – Jane Goodall (http://www.animalplanet.com/tv-shows/jane-goodall/photos/jane-goodall-birthday/)
Please. Start small, but start!
