Rhino

Rhino

Rhinos were once found throughout Eurasia and Africa, but today, three of the five rhino species are Critically Endangered, meaning they face a high chance of extinction. In recent years rhino numbers have dropped dramatically due to poaching for their horn which is prized in Asian countries. They also face threats from habitat loss and political conflict.

Trapeze

Weavers are named for their intricately woven nests. The nests come in various sizes and shapes, with different materials used to build the nests. From the giant nests of the sociable weavers, housing up to 500 weavers in a single nest, to the untidy communal nest of the buffalo-weaver, to the elaborately woven nest of the masked weavers, each species has an individual structure to its nest. The most intricate nests are built by the males and he will build many nests before the female will accept the nest and breed.
