Species: White rhino | Location: Ongava Conservancy, Namibia
Mom and baby white rhino. Namibia has an extensive conservation program to protect white and black rhinos. We had just come from Damaraland where the Rhino Trust goes to the extreme measure of sedating them and cutting their horns to protect them from poachers. The horns grow back as they are made of the same stuff as our hair and fingernails.
