In case you have not heard, there are now only 6 White Rhinos left in existence since the death of a 34 year old male rhino on October 17. Once those 6 rhinos die, the African White Rhino will be extinct, meaning that there will be no more rhinos in the entire world.
This means that Nico will only hear the stories of how there was once an animal called a rhino.
This means that he will see them in pictures and be told that they aren't any more rhinos left.
This means that when he visits the zoo with his class, there will be no rhino exhibit.
How many more species are we going to kill off before we realize that soon there will be no animals for the future generations to learn about or discover?
How long before we learn to coexist with the animal kingdom for their benefit?
Good bye White Rhinos!
Let's not let this happen again.
