Eastern Black Rhinoceros | Critically Endangered
Rhino horn is made of keratin, just like human hair and nails. Yet poaching for their horn has led to their severe decline over the past 20 years. Purchase a limited-edition pass and take action with us to help protect the eastern black rhino.
Our black rhino ancestors, revered for their majestic horns, once numbered in the tens of thousands across Africa. But what makes us unique has ultimately led to our downfall, as decades of poaching has reduced our population by 90%. While the poacher may pull the trigger, illegal wildlife trade pulls the strings. You can help end the bloodshed by checking the origin of wildlife products. Ensure your souvenirs are sourced ethically and legally to prevent poachers from profiting.
The Price of Extinction takes into account how long each species has been at risk and how much it would cost to save them. The higher the price, the higher their risk.
Each Price of Extinction is represented by a collectible, limited-edition pass that helps to take away their threat. So, buy a pass, hear their plea, and take action with us to protect these critical species.
