Rhinos have been driven to near extinction – the world rhino population has fallen by more than 90 percent in the past 30 years. Whereas 30 species of rhino once roamed the planet, only five remain today, and all of them are endangered. In Africa, only the black rhinoceros and white rhinoceros still exist.
What’s the cause of the rhino’s precipitous decline? Not the habitat loss or food supply disruption that affects so many African animals. Rather, it is man’s relentless pursuit of the animal’s unique horn that poses the single most dangerous threat to rhinos today.
To help educate others, you can go to the African Wildlife Foundation web site for more information on how to help protect and preserve these majestic beasts.
Today we have a rhino head papercraft model from one of our favorite paper engineers, Chan See Lik Paul, who designed this model for 3dpapermodel.com.tw - we've previously posted on his other works such as this Easter Egg and Easter Bunny for Epson Hong Kong.
