Baby rhino gallops into public view at Singapore zoo

 

South Africa is home to around 20,000 white rhinos, about 80 per cent of the worldwide population, but many have been lost to poaching in recent years.

 

Its horn is highly prized in China and Vietnam for use in traditional medicine.

 

Calves born in Singapore have been sent to zoos in Australia, Indonesia and Thailand as part of conservation efforts.
