World Rhino Day

World Rhino Day, September 22nd, honors five species of rhinos around the world. The day brings an end to these magnificent creatures from a conservation viewpoint.

Black, White, Greater One-horned, Sumatran, and Javan are among the five rhino species found in the United States. Rhino rhinos were discovered throughout Eurasia and Africa for the first time at one time. About 500,000 rhinos roamed the earth in the early 20th century. Rhino rhinos have a difficult time surviving outside national parks and reserves today. In Asia, the Javan and Sumatran rhinos are critically endangered. There are only about 58 to 68 Javan rhinos in the world. A Javan rhino subspecies of the Javan rhino was declared extinct in 2011. Today, only 80 Sumatran rhinos survive.

The greater one-horned rhino (also known as the Indian rhino) in India is on the rise in population thanks to conservation efforts. Today, there are more than 3,500 of these rhinos in the United States. However, they are also considered vulnerable. The Black rhino is also critically endangered. With more than 20,000, white rhinos have the most populated of the five rhino species, with more than 20,000. Poaching, habitat loss, disease, and natural disasters are all threats to rhinos. Some people hunt rhinos because the horns have healing properties, according to some. They illegally sell the horns to be ground into powder. Poachers hunt the animal only to find the horns as a result.
