What are the two subspecies of white rhino?
Northern white rhinos and southern white rhinos are genetically distinct subspecies and are found in two different regions in Africa.
What is the white rhino success story?
White rhinos were brought back from the brink of extinction through conservation efforts. A recent surge in poaching and illegal trade, however, have killed record numbers in recent years.
What is the white rhino’s social structure?
The white rhino’s social structure is very complex with groups of 14, mostly females and calves. Dominant males patrol a one mile territory and breeding females are prevented from leaving.
