Rhinos are extinct, just like the dinosaurs. This sentence is one we all might be saying within the next 20 years unless the current climate changes in Africa.

It was not lost on me that anyone I met in Rwanda from about the age of 20 onwards had experienced and survived one of the most unspeakably dark events of the 20th century.
