On the Brink of Extinction

Image   •   sep 26, 2017 16:00 CEST

Throughout the African continent, numerous wildlife species are under very realistic threats of becoming extinct. Two of the most vulnerable species are the white and black rhinos. At the current rate of poaching incidents, it's very likely that they will become extinct within our lifetime. It's due to this that I'm overjoyed and filled with sadness every time I'm privileged enough to see one in its natural environment and photograph them. This photograph was taken in Kruger National Park, South Africa under stormy skies, which is somewhat symbolic of the crisis facing these amazing creatures.
