Two southern white rhinos share a moment at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in northern Kenya. 

At the end of the 19th century, southern white rhino were on the brink of extinction with only one small population of 20-50 animals remaining in South Africa. Today, thanks to one of the most successful collective conservation efforts of the century, there are now thriving populations in east and southern Africa and there are now 20,000 of these amazing creatures.

Despite this rebound, poaching remains a massive threat to all rhinos and each individual is carefully cared for and guarded. In a world of 7 billion, we need to start recognizing that we are not separate from nature. When we see ourselves as part of nature, then saving nature is really about saving ourselves.

Ol Pejeta is home to 39 southern white rhino and the last two northern white rhino on the planet, a species they are working furiously to restore. And they just celebrated a huge milestone in black rhino conservation with the birth of their 150th black rhino. Ol Pejeta is home to the largest black rhino population in East Africa.
