Hi guys, I’m Amberly, and this is “Animalist News.”
We hear so many stories about how
us humans are destroying rhino populations.
Finally I’ve got some good news to tell you all.
一位叫 Liam Burrough的男子成为了一头犀牛宝宝的守护天使，
A man named Liam Burrough became a baby rhino’s guardian angel
while driving near Kruger National Park in South Africa.
As he drove closer to the park, the white rhino
stumbled out onto the side of the road looking dehydrated
and covered with wounds.
Luckily, Burrough was willing to stop and help the poor thing.
He sent a friend to go get a park ranger while he stayed
and poured water onto the calf.
This is unfortunately where the story takes a dark turn.
Later, on Facebook, Burrough said
it was very obvious that the rhino was abandoned
after its mother had been killed by poachers.
He wrote, “The tragic irony of all this
being that the calf had approached the very creatures
who are responsible for her being orphaned.”
In 2014 alone, over 700 rhinos have been murdered by poachers.
This could be the worst year for rhinos
ever, like in history ever.
Why you ask?
Because we can’t seem to convince people
in other countries that rhino horns
don’t cure medical conditions.
That’s what it all boils down to, folks.
People being greedy.
And although I hate poachers with a fiery passion,
I can understand their motivations I guess.
They are being offered sometimes hundreds of thousands
of dollars for these horns.
And if they’re poor, well, like I said,
I understand their motivations.
But it’s still inexcusable.
And while we usually think of all the rhinos
that have been killed, we often forget
about the innocent babies that are left behind.
庆幸的是，这只被 Liam Burrough 发现的犀牛幼崽
Thankfully, the baby rhino that Liam Burrough found
is now resting easy at Care for Wild Africa’s rehabilitation
center and has officially been named Shadow.
Ooh, so cute.
Even better news is that his caretakers
say there’s a huge chance he’ll be able to return to the wild.
Southern white rhinos like Shadow
have been a huge conservation success story.
Northern white rhinos on the other hand–
well, there’s only a handful of them left.
So please share this video, and help raise awareness
for our rhino friends.
If you’re feeling especially generous,
you can donate to one of the charities
down below in our description.
And if you want to see more wild animals,
please check out our new show on the Animalist network,
我们在” Breaking Trail “后留下地图
“Breaking Trail” where we leave the map behind
并跟随动物爱好者， Coyote Peterson。
and follow animal enthusiast, Coyote Peterson,
into some of the wildest and coolest environments
in North America.
Now one of the coolest defense mechanisms of this lizard
is the fact that it can squirt blood from its eyes.
What they’ll do is push all the blood
to the front of their face, and then blood vessels
burst right at the corner of the eyes,
and shoot streams of blood out.
I’ll see you next time.
