The theme of World Rhino Day 2021 is understood to be 'Keep The Five Alive' with the five being - Sumatran Rhino, Black Rhino, Greater One-Horned Rhino, Javan Rhino and White Rhino.

How is World Rhino Day Celebrated?

World Rhino Day revolves around recognising and celebrating the five species of rhinoceros that are currently spotted - Sumatran rhino, Greater one-horned rhino, Black rhino, Javan rhino and white rhino. It is important to note that there are 100s of species of rhinos that can be seen in various stages of history. However, most of them have been driven to extinction. Three of the five species, namely Black, Javan and Sumatran rhinos, are also in the endangered category.

All these factors make the celebration of World Rhino Day much more significant. The preservation of all species of flora and fauna is essential in maintaining the ecosystem. World Rhino Day aims to help this cause by initiating conversations on the history, role and importance of rhinos, how we can help them and more. One key reason the rhino population may be attacked is the trade of animal horns and skins in the black market. It is, therefore, crucial to initiate conversations on these subjects and keep the rhinos safe. Here's hoping that this World Rhino Day, you do your bit to keep the rhino population safe and growing.
