22 September 2021 – Today is World Rhino Day

Today is World Rhino Day.

Rhino are some of the most iconic animals on Earth. Join us to help spread awareness by celebrating World Rhino Day.

World Rhino Day is a day of awareness for all five rhino species and the work being done to save them. Since 2011, World Rhino Day has been celebrated internationally on September 22nd – this year is the 10th anniversary!

All the species of Rhino are on the edge of extinction all because of poaching, destruction of natural habitat and climate change.

This year, the theme of this international event is ‘Keep The Five Alive’, for the black, white, greater one-horned, Sumatran and Javan rhinos.

It was first started by World Wildlife Fund-South Africa in 2010. However, it was in 2011 the event got international recognition when Lisa Jane Campbell of Chishakwe Ranch in Zimbabwe and founder of Annamitici joined hands with creative director Rhishja Cota to create large-scale awareness to protect the species.
