With the addition of the newborn their are now a total of 14 rhinoceros at the Safari making it the largest herd in the region. While White rhinoceros are the only rhino's not on the endangered species list they are still monitored closely since they are at risk for poaching. The World Wild Life organization estimates their are only about 20,000 white rhino's left on the planet.
