May 1st Save The Rhino Day
Did you know that Rhinos have been on earth for over a million years!?! In fact, they are considered to be living dinosaurs. Over time they have been hunted for their horns, made of the same material as your fingernails (so, if you have long nails you may want to watch out!). Like so many of the earth’s animals they are not hunted for food but for items we could all easily do without.
How to celebrate – Visit rhinos in a zoo. Give to a charity trying to preserve the rhino. Visit Africa and see rhinos in the wild.
