In Black Rhino, you will find answers to these questions as you learn why this powerful animal needs a lot of help from concerned people so that it does not disappear from this Earth. From 24-hour guards to relocating these 1-ton animals, conservationists have had to work hard to save the remaining rhinos. As you learn about their long breeding cycle and why some people value their horns, you will better understand how much work still needs to be done.
