Environmental Geology

Endangered White Rhino

I took this picture while teaching high school in Kenya, 1982-84. Years later, after coming to New Orleans, I read about the murder of this rhino and some others with him, supposedly protected by 24-hour armed guard. He was killed for his horn and hooves, used in Yemen for knife handles and in China for traditional medicine.
