Happy World Rhino Day!
to my Awesome Rhino Friends
Greater One-Horned Rhino, Gauhati!
Black Rhinos, Elly! and her Grandson Belozi!
... remembering Mishaki, you are missed!
Tomorrow is World Rhino Day! I have been lucky to know some awesome Rhinos! They are Beautiful and Intelligent! All species of these Wonderful Beings are threatened. Please visit this site to learn more about their plight. http://www.worldrhinoday.org
So, the San Francisco Zoo is Finally! getting with the program and acknowledging an Animal Awareness Day! I guess at some point the Shame from Other Zoo's participation and my blogging about their lack of Celebration, had to nudge them eventually. All I can say is, its about time! I haven't seen one of these Days acknowledged since I've been aware of them myself, at least last couple years. Recognizing these Animal Awareness Days, not only bring attention to the plight of threatened Species, but Celebrates the lives of the Wonderful Beings we are so lucky to have in our lives. It's also a win-win in getting people to the Zoo and educating them.
Will report on the Zoo's participation and Enrichment activities. So check back for my next post.
