A rhino is not what you would consider cute and cuddly, but everybody needs love and attention. Gertjie takes two long walks daily and absolutely loves his mud baths, he spends sleep time snuggled up with a staff member and loves taking a nap of their lap. The only big problem keeping him healthy is that he needs special milk, and a lot of it. This baby drinks 12 liters a day of it, so the center accepts donations of powdered milk. It’s just so devastating to hear how heartless people can be: since 2007 rhino poaching tremendously increased. Two rhinos are poached every day. The trade of illegal rhino horn is fueled by Asia, where it is used as a medicine. At current rate of poaching, rhinos will be extinct by 2025. Thanks to wildlife preservations and adopting centers, there is still hope that our future generations will have the opportunity to see these endangered animals.
