The day is celebrated to spread awareness, to protect ecological balance and to protect wildlife.
The speaker urged that it is the dire need to protect the five existing species of Rhino, all these five species are living in Africa and Asian continent. Javan Rhinos, Sumatran Rhinos and Black Rhinos are listed as critically endangered.
Elucidating the theme of the World Rhino Day, she described various types of Rhinos and the ones that are vulnerable to extinction.
