Five rhino species exist today; three (Sumatran, Javan, Indian) are found in Asia and the remaining two (black, white) are native to Africa. Within each of these groups, subspecies exist and it is those that are facing dire risks of disappearing completely. While zoos work to increase captive populations, it is the wild groups, living in reserves that stand the best chance to thrive in large numbers.
Wherever they’re sighted (with the exception of Hawaii’s airport, apparently), they’re drawing the attention of bird watchers and the general public. They’re really causing a stir in Kansas and Missouri, as these beautiful white birds might typically forage across northern states, but have been seen soaring over the middle-of-the-U.S. regions.
