Celebrate 5 Species on 5/5 – Cinco de Rhino
We’re one week away from Cinco de Rhino! Every year on 5/5, friends and partners around the world celebrate rhinos and raise awareness for the 5 species. You can help by sharing our posts, hosting a fundraiser, or joining us on May 5th for a celebration of rhinos. We have a variety of virtual events scheduled throughout the day – we hope you can join us!

Wish I could join but going for therapy & acupuncture so I can return to be with rhinos. I have had the privilege to kiss 3 White & 1 Black rhinos when we sponsored dehornings while in South Africa🥰😘😍🦏
