    By one estimate, a rhino is killed every 18 hours in South Africa. If you find this fact startling, you’re not alone.

    On a recent trip to South Africa, CI’s own Kim McCabe saw the aftereffects of this awful poaching. But she also saw a rhino, recovered from poaching injuries, going back into the wild.

    As Kim writes on our blog, “Like all wildlife, the rhino is part of the complex web of life that makes our planet so special — and like every unique species, helps to balance the ecosystems we rely on for food, water, fresh air, arable soil and many other ecosystem services.”

    Visit CI’s blog to watch Kim’s video of the rhino going back into the wild — and to get an inside look at her visit to a South African game reserve.
