Editors Note An award-winning conservationist tells the story of his efforts to save the White Rhino| Conservationist Lawrence A nthony's South African wildlife reserve protects elephants and many other animals, including several S outhern White Rhino, an endangered species threatened by poachers. But while the Southern White Rhino is at risk, the Northern White is on the brink of extinction. In The Last Rhinos, he tells the story of his attempt to save these remarkable creatures. When he discovered that only fifteen Northern White Rhinos remained in the wild, he knew he had to act. If the world lost the species, it would be the largest mammal since the woolly mammoth to go extinct. The rhino lived in an area controlled by the Lord's R esistance Army, known for its brutality and use of child soldiers. In the face of unmoving bureaucracy, he convinced these armed rebels to protect the rhino, and in the process became a chief negotiator between the LRA and the Ugandan government. A n inspiring story of conservation in the face of brutal war and bureaucratic quagmires, The Last Rhinos will move animal-lovers everywhere.
