Last 22 September saw a day of campaigning, fundraising and raising awareness for all rhino species (black, white, greater one-horned, Sumatran and Javan), across the world. The day was first announced by WWF-South Africa in 2010. The following year, World Rhino Day grew into an international success, encompassing both African and Asian rhino species. In Bali, the future existence of this species lies in the paws of two white African rhinos, affectionately named Hima and Nelson, at the Bali Safari & Marine Park. The two are consistently given much-needed ‘encouragement’, and now it is simply a matter of time to see whether Hima can look forward to the sound of little hooves.

Celebrating World Rhino Day, Bali Safari & Marine Park held a photo contest, where during the safari journey at the park’s African savannah, the safari tram made a stop to allow passengers to take photos of the captivating Hima and Nelson.  The two put on quite a show during the day, and struck quite some poses, too!!
