Description

An inspiring story of conservation in the face of brutal war and bureaucratic quagmires, The Last Rhinos will move animal lovers everywhere. Conservationist Lawrence Anthony's South African wildlife reserve protects elephants and many other animals, including several endangered Southern White Rhinos. When he learned that the Northern White Rhino was on the very brink of extinction--courtesy of a flourishing black market for rhino horns in the Far East--he knew he had to act. If the world lost the sub-species, it would be the largest land mammal since the woolly mammoth to go extinct. The Northern White Rhino's last refuge was in an area in the Democratic Republic of Congo controlled by the infamous Lord's Resistance Army, one of the most vicious rebel groups in the world. In the face of unmoving government bureaucracy, Anthony made a perilous journey deep into the jungle to try to find and convince them to help save the rhino.
