rhinos found in the wild today are distributed in
eastern and southern Africa. They also tend to live
in habitats that are on the verge of woodlands and
need a plentiful water supply near their herd. The
numbers of rhinos remaining in the wild today are
as such: African Black: 2500, white: 7500-8500,
asian: 2000, Javen: less then 70, Sumatran: less
then 400. Hunting of their horns is their main threat.
A Rhino horn is worth its weight in gold. The reason
for their declines are overhunting, slow breeding,
elephants taking their hunting grounds and the long
rearing process for their young.
