San Diego's Safari Park is an amazing place. Not only do they have 1,800 acres of land for their 2,600 animals to run free (almost all of them live in the same gigantic enclosure that is meant to imitate the African plains) but they also have managed to triple the populations of many species on the verge of extinction.
the five remaining norther white rhinos on Earth.
But this isn't a card that is supposed to bum you out - there is plenty of good news too!!!
This gorgeous girl is a 41 year old northern white rhino who was captured in the wild
She is living out her days in San Diego, where she is one of the four last northern white rhinos in the world. As you can see, she is treated like the princess she is :)
Her age means that she's constantly struggling with her health, but San Diego's Safari Park is great at keeping her fans up to date on her status - and it's always great to see thousands of other people clearly rooting for this lovely lady.
Today we got an update that she's recovering from a recent procedure (and it looks like she got a cute makeover to go with it!)
So how can you help?

Why, you ask?
JUST LOTS OF CUTE ANIMAL BABIES, OKAY?!
You can watch these babies grow up and in many cases be introduced back into the wild.
The animals are funny!
And so are the awesome people who work with the animals!
We have a responsibility to care for the other beings we share the earth with
