The rhinoceros is our planet’s armoured giant.

There are five species of rhino – white and black rhinos in Africa, and the greater one-horned, Javan and Sumatran rhino species in Asia. To coincide with World Rhino Day, we’d like to invite you to get to know more about this critically endangered species and how they desperately need your help. We’ve got some fantastic free resources for you to enjoy along the way; including fact sheets, craft activities and a free downloadable rhino poster!
