All 5 species of rhinos are either critically endangered, vulnerable or threatened. When the world’s last northern male white rhino died, something of mankind died with it too. For years they have been hunted for the supposed medicinal value of their horn. When will man learn to share this planet with our fellow creatures? This image of the baby rhino with its mother, standing still, in the midst of a swirling sandstorm seemed like a perfect metaphor of their vulnerability.
