Northern white rhinos are the world’s rarest large mammal,
and are thought to be extinct in the wild.
What's it going to take for humans to wake up?
A June 2008 report UK weekly The Sunday Times reported that the last four known wild northern white rhinos were feared to have been killed for their horns, as they could not be located. Rhino horn powder is used in traditional Chinese medicine, and trades for $1,610 an ounce — slightly more than gold, according to conservationists. source: http://www.ceskapozice.cz

"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison" . Her next sentence was, "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
