Black rhinos (spetsnoshörning) greeting each other in the night. The left one is the younger and its is really submissive to the big male at the right. Namibia has been great so far with a staggering 24 black rhinos - one of the worlds most endangered animals.
Large-scale poaching resulted in a dramatic 96% decline from c. 70,000 individuals in 1970 to just 2,410 in 1995. Thanks to the persistent efforts of conservation programmes across Africa, black rhino numbers have risen since then to a current population of between 5,042 and 5,458 individuals.

Meet Maxwell he's an orphaned black Rhino living at the sancuary. Maxwell was born blind so his mother abandoned him. Not being able to defend himself in the wild they took him in so he can be safe #davidsheldrick #blackrhino #crunch #bigguy

Este año, el premio del Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 sirve para denunciar el tráfico ilegal de especies. Concretamente, esta foto de Brent Stirton narra la historia de otro rinoceronte negro que muere por su cuerno, dentro de una investigación encubierta sobre este tema en el parque Hluhluwe Imfolozi de Sudáfrica. ¿Lo más triste? Probablemente sea que el cuerno de rinoceronte no difiere en composición a las uñas de nuestros pies, así que el exterminio que han sufrido estos animales alimenta falsa medicina que en lugar de sanar a nuestra especie hace desaparecer a otras. Ya hablamos en el blog de esto --> https://blognasua.wordpress.com/2015/10/19/las-propiedades-del-cuerno-de-rinoceronte/ Como siempre, grandioso el trabajo de Stirton, que tiene unas cuantas fotos icónicas en su vida profesional

The best thing about #worldpressphoto is that the story gains tremendous exposure and is seen by people who may not be aware of what is going on. The natural world is threatened like never before, we have to learn to live in balance with nature or it's over. #worldpressphoto2017 #rhinopoaching #wppnature #blackrhino #carcass #extinction

Rhinos have a part of the ecosystem for millions of years, letting them go extinct would be a tragedy mankind could not escape. Drink Coffee-Save Rhino

“ Poachers killed this black rhinocerous for its horn with high-caliber bullets at a water hole in South Africa’s Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. They entered the park illegally, likely from a nearby village, and are thought to have used a silenced hunting rifle. Once the most numerous rhino species, black rhinos are now critically endangered due to poaching and the illegal international trade in rhino horn, one of the world’s most corrupt illegal wildlife networks. Less than 5,000 black rhinos remain.

@brentstirton was awarded the prestigious @nhm_wpy Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 title for this compelling image taken on assignment for @natgeo. Brent’s image will be on display with other images selected by an international panel of judges at the 53rd Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the @natural_history_museum in London.
