South African Rhinoceros
Australian documentary Save This Rhino, with Outback Wrangler Matt Wright and cricketrs Kevin Pietersen and Graeme Smith profiles the world’s critically endangered rhinoceros population in South Africa, on National Geographic.
As Matt Wright explains, it is these kinds of solutions, along with empowerment of the local community, that can help save the world’s rhinoceros population: “As a conservationist, filming this series reinforced my belief in the importance of protecting the environment. Rhinos are one of Africa’s ‘Big Five’ and imagining a world without them is almost beyond comprehension. And yet it’s a frighteningly close reality. “The work that is being done to save rhinos from extinction is nothing short of awe-inspiring, and I truly believe that the passion of the local community, combined with the technology being implemented, will shift the dial for rhinos. Hopefully this series also encourages the Australian community to act and support the cause.”
