Explore the Earth: rhinos
The best spots across the globe to see these graceful unicorns
These small African rhinos can be recognised by the distinctive point on their front lip. The population crashed to fewer than 2,500 individuals in the 1990s but has since rebounded.
Larger and more numerous than black rhinos, white rhinos have a square lip. Intense conservation has pushed the population into the tens of thousands, making this only one of two non-endangered rhino species, the other being the Indian rhino.
Javan rhinos were once found in India and Vietnam, but there are only around 70 left, all restricted to the Indonesian island of Java. This the most critically endangered of all the rhino species that remain.
Also known as the greater onehorned rhino, this species once numbered fewer than 200. There are now more than 3,000 in India and Nepal.
This is the smallest rhino species in the world. Once numerous across Asia, this twohorned species is now found only in Sumatra and Borneo.
