September 22nd was World Rhino Day, which celebrates Rhinoceroses and generates awareness of issues regarding their well-being.
In recent years, rhinos have been threatened by poaching, urbanization and pollution, which have left certain rhino species on the brink of extinction while leaving other species severely endangered.
Announced by WWF-South Africa in 2010, it took only a year for World Rhino Day to grow internationally, encompassing both African and Asian rhino species, with events worldwide bringing attention the plight of these rare animals.
One of many highlights for participants and supporters attending the VII Commonwealth Tenpin Bowling Championship at Northcliff Bowl in Johannesburg, South Africa, between 19 and 27 November 2016 is the opportunity to see these remarkable animals, along with hippos, lions, tigers, cheetah, giraffe and more than 20 other species of wildlife.
Just thirty minutes northwest of Johannesburg lies the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve in the heart of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site. This haven boasts numerous game species including White Rhino, the second largest land mammal on earth after the elephant.
