Black Rhinoceros Conservation | 27:Fifty (1992) - Episode 4


Calvin Benson of Harlingen, Texas devotes his life to the conservation of the Black Rhinoceros. The Black Rhinoceros is an endangered species, and at the time this segment was made, there were only 50 left in the world. These Rhinoceroses are taken care of in a ranch just outside of North Hidalgo County. Overhunting, poachers, and poor legal protection are to blame for this species of rhinoceros going into near extinction in African countries.
