"BABY RHINO ON THE RUN! With the Rhinoceros now facing extinction more than ever- the Black Rhino population has declined by 96%, yet with the Southern White Rhino population dramatically increasing, it shows that something can be done to overcome poaching and keep these species alive!"
Here is the best animal face you will see today! This is a Saiga antelope (Saiga tatarica), a species listed in CITES Appendix ll and evaluated as critically endangered by the lUCN Red List. It lives in Asia (Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan)

This was taken a few weeks ago when the young #pangolin that we confiscated from poachers on the Park's western boundary, and were looking after here in #Garamba, was out on a walk looking for termites. Her mother had been killed and she was weak and slightly underweight when the Park rangers brought her in. After spending a month at headquarters gaining strength and weight, she was recently released back into the wild. It was fascinating to get to know her over the month and watch her walk, feed, drink and sleep - Something that is not often witnessed. Pangolins are the most trafficked animal in the world and many of those poached and removed come from the Central African forests.
