Video: Through the Thick – Preserving the Wild Rhino in South Africa

As someone who absolutely loves traveling through Africa, the thought of some of the iconic wildlife there being hunted to extinction is incredibly difficult to fathom. But poachers are killing off rhinos and elephants at an alarming rate, to the point where there may not be any left in the wild within a few decades. This video takes a look at the efforts to preserve rhinos in South Africa, where those creatures have been the target of illegal poaching for a long time. It is a fantastic 15-minute short documentary that is both informative and moving. This is definitely something everyone should see.
