Bali Safari & Marine will hold a spectacular celebration to commemorate World Rhino Day this year. This annual event is held in a dazzling celebration called “Carnival Rhino.” The event not only commemorates World Rhino Day but also provides an opportunity for visitors to have fun and get to know rhinos, iconic animals that we need to protect together.
What is World Rhino Day?
World Rhino Day is an annual celebration aimed at raising awareness and supporting rhino conservation efforts worldwide. It falls on September 22nd each year and has become an important moment for conservationists, environmentalists, and the general public to unite in protecting this highly endangered species.
Why Are Rhinos Important?
Rhinos are land animals that play a crucial role in the ecosystems they inhabit. They help maintain the balance of plants and other animals. Unfortunately, rhinos have become targets of illegal hunting for their valuable horns, which are made of a substance called rhino horn and are highly sought after on the black market.
Rhinos are mammals that are believed to have inhabited the Earth for 50 million years. However, in the world today, only five rhino species remain: two in Africa, namely the white rhino (Ceratotherium simum) and the black rhino (Diceros bicornis), and three in Asia, namely the Indian rhino (Rhinoceros unicornis), the Javan rhino (Rhinoceros sondaicus), and the Sumatran rhino (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis). The northern white rhino has already been declared extinct.
Rhinos represent the strength and sustainability of ecosystems. They are evidence of life from the time of the dinosaurs. While dinosaurs and many other species perished due to drastic climate changes, rhinos have survived and their existence has been preserved to this day. Bali Safari itself is home to critically endangered African White Rhinos, with only one in Bali. Bali Safari serves as a conservation site and habitat for them, mirroring their natural environment. To honor and appreciate their vital presence in this ecosystem, Bali Safari celebrates World Rhino Day in grand fashion.
Exciting Activities at Bali Safari
In “Carnival Rhino,” Bali Safari will present a series of entertaining and educational events for all visitors.
