Rhino Rescue : A rhinoceros is a powerful beast weighing 3 tons or more and wielding a deadly horn up to five feet long. Ruthlessly slaughtered for centuries, rhinos are suddenly one of conservation's great success stories as populations of white rhinos and black rhinos recover. Even so, rhinos are still at risk: Javan and Sumatran rhinos are close to extinction and the world rhino population is still less than it was just 30 years ago. Rhino Rescue profiles people around the world who are helping rhinos. Illustrated with 50 spectacular color photographs, Rhino Rescue also surveys the biological issues in and challenges of preserving a future for endangered wildlife.
