Only three northern white rhinos left in Africa...

For many years now I have been working with anti-poaching organisations, fighting against illegal trade in animals, and I particularly know that rhinos are being hit hard. So I decided that as soon as I had the time I would go and see the northern white rhinos. Since there are only three left in Africa (a total of six in the whole world) I knew I needed to be quick.

The rhinos themselves are living at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, East Africa. It is an extremely well-run conservancy, so it is not surprising that they were chosen to look after these three. They also have a very impressive anti-poaching and guard team and work in a very modern and good way.

These anti-poaching guys are real heroes, as all these dedicated teams are all over the world. I really hope we can get these last rhinos to breed so our children can also get to see these wonderful animals. I don't want them to become just another number on the extinction list.
