, the uneducated animal-lovers all crowd around species who are not even endangered, in the name of blind animal favoritism, meanwhile this beautiful animal did not receive the protection it desperately needed, and we will never see another black rhino alive again.
Let this be a lesson to those out there protecting common, beloved species rather than actually endangered ones.
Do your research - animals out there do need your support, and it's not always the species you love best. Support them anyway, and don't waste time and effort protecting species that are stable just because you admire them.
I can't believe this species died out in my lifetime.
I have always heard of their dwindling numbers, and I've done a school project or two on them.
I never thought they'd actually go extinct.
I thought we had more power than that.
Edit: Oh shit, this article is old.
Still news to me, though.
