🦏 Between 1960 and 1995, black rhino populations saw a 98% decrease, to less than 2,500 individuals. Since then, the species has made a remarkable comeback from the brink of extinction, thanks to conservation efforts. It just comes to show that if we work together to prevent human-wildlife conflict, as well as educate people on the issue, we can prevent extinction. Saying this, with about 5,500 black rhinos left today, there is still a lot to do to make this species thrive as it did many years ago.
