A black rhino (Diceros bicornis) cools down taking an evening dip at a local watering hole. The black rhino is critically endangered. Shot taken at the Etosha National Park in Namibia. Today, Namibia is home almost half of the world’s population of black rhino – most of these are found in Etosha National Park. Between 1960 and 1995, numbers dropped by a horrifying 96.7%, mainly as a result of poaching for their horns.
