    poached every year, the highest recoreded rhinos

    killed for there horns
      This is just one reason why we should protect black rhino's
there are many other reasons to save these endandgerd creatures.Black rhinos need to be saved not just from poaching but from large wild cats such as lions that will prey on the black rhino calves and weak individuals. Humans are the biggest threat to the black rhinos as they have been hunted to the brink of extinction for their horns.Black rhinos lack keen eyesight this is why they charge at you so they get a better look .They use their horns to protect themselves and use mud to protect their skin.Black rhinos live in southern Africa,including BotswanaKenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.These are the reasons we need to protect the black rhino we also have to STOP poaching or the black rhino will become extint. To keep the black rhinos population up we have to take them to zoo's and breed them unless you want another extint animal.
