Rhino species are facing the threat of extinction and this day was created in efforts to keep five rhino species forever! This themed day at the Zoo is filled with educational rhino fun where guests can attend keeper chats, ask the keepers themselves questions and participate in raffles and activities. It’s your chance to get involved and learn how to help raise awareness for these endangered giants.
There are five rhino species – black, white, greater one-horned, Sumatran and Javan. The Maryland Zoo is the proud home to two southern white rhinos in our African Watering Hole exhibit. Get to know these unique animals, the threats to their survival and why conservation efforts are so critical.
