Rhinos are Celebrated every year on 22nd of September.
World Rhino Day is one special day that accords cause-related companies, bodies, zoos, businesses and organisations as well as members of the public the opportunity to celebrate earth’s second largest terrestrial mammal, the Rhinoceros.
In Uganda I have seen Rhinos, the southern white Rhino species in particular; numerous times at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary in Nakasongola district, the only place where tourists and visitors can see rhinos roaming freely in the wild; and the Uganda Wildlife Education Center (UWEC) in Entebbe (alias the Entebbe Zoo).
Last year (2017) I visited the Rhino Sanctuary for the first time and you can find details of how that trip went, right here.
This year I returned. It was Saturday morning, the 11th of August 2018 that I visited Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary in northwestern Uganda for the third time, this time with my camera.
I had a lengthy chat with the Head Guide at the wildlife sanctuary and as we celebrate World Rhino Day today, I am sharing a video on My YouTube Channel with a few insights on Rhinos and Rhino conservation in the world; the case of Uganda.
And below are some photos I took during my recent visit.
It’s your turn now. Let me know in the comment box below what you know about Rhinos and why you think a Rhino is special and should be protected.
Happy World Rhino Day once again!
