Rhinos Essential for Savanna Ecosystem and Economy
“To everything there is a balance. The web of all species is intricately connected, each relies on the others. When we let a species go extinct, we upset the balance. So if we fail the rhino, what will happen to the rest of the savanna? Rhinos are mega-herbivores, the lawn maintenance crew of the savanna. Their job to the ecosystem is to carve out paths for other creatures (eating), make water holes (digging), and to help germinate plants (defecating)” (Rhino Girl).
