  1. I was actually lucky enough to see one of the last captive white rhinos at the San Diego Zoo a few years ago. It looked like an everyday rhino that you see in magazines, so it was shocking to know that the rhino was near extinct. I agree that humans are too aggressive, and are now killing rare animals just for fun, not for survival or population control. This website from the international rhino foundation says that every 13 hours, another rhino is killed in South Africa, and has advice on how to end poaching https://www.rhinos.org/operation-stop-poaching-now

Poaching laws aren’t taken as seriously as I think they should be — human consumption of our own animal life is out of control.
