Beth Jung's curator insight, February 2, 4:37 AM

This article is about how rhinos in Africa are endangered.  Before I read this article, I was unaware of this problem. After reading this article, I realized how serious this problem was. I think this is a big problem because if rhinos go extinct, it disturbs the food chain, eventually harm us. To solve this, people in South Africa and other countries should take care of these animals so that their race will be preserved.
