West Palm Beach, FL (Lion Country Safari) - Lion Country Safari, home to the largest herd of Southern White Rhinos in the country, is celebrating World Rhino Day September 22, 2013. The 14 rhinos on safari will get enrichments wrapped in colorful boxes throughout the day. From 12 to 2 pm guests can make a rhino-themed craft in our Education Station.
The endangered Southern White Rhinoceros is the third largest land animal after African and Asian elephants. Of the five species of rhinos (White, Black, Indian, Sumatran and Javan) the white rhino is the most abundant with approximately 20,150 alive today but all 5 species are in peril due mostly to poaching.
