Video Highlights from World Rhino Day: Sumatran Rhino Pregnancy Ultrasound Scan and More

Here are more videos commemorating World Rhino Day. These videos serve as reminders to keep rhinos in our hearts and minds beyond this day.

1. The sad story of a male white rhino named Max

2. Filmmakers Nikki Reed and Adrian Steirn depict how the needless pain and disfigurement of this rhino reminds us that, if we can’t save them, we’ll never save ourselves. Support the Ian Somerhalder Foundation and their Hope for the Rhinos campaign.

3. Bali, a greater one-horned rhino calf, has won the hearts of visitors and keepers after being born just in time for World Rhino Day. The greater one-horned rhino is deemed “Vulnerable,” with fewer than 3,000 in the wild. Thus, the birth of Bali is great news for the international breeding program at the Zoological Society of London’s Whipsande Zoo.

4. A new rhino calf will be joining five others at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Indonesia’s Way Kambas National Park, providing hope for this endangered species. Female rhino “Ratu” will give birth in May. Sumatran rhino pregnancies last about 16 months, and babies weigh between 50 to 60 pounds. According to reproductive specialists, these ultrasound images indicate that the pregnancy is progressing normally. For more information, visit www.rhinos.org.
