CNN: “With 1 male left worldwide, northern white rhinos under guard 24 hours”

How did we get to the situation in which the wildlife is rapidly becoming extinct?

Are we aware of our moral responsibility to the nature, and to the next generations of people that come after us?

What did those cold-blooded scoundrels, known as poachers, think every time they killed a white rhino for its horn? Why did they do it – to earn their living, for the sake of some wealthy customer somewhere, or as a cruel sport?

Or perhaps they did not think anything at all as they pulled the trigger on the living being who shared this planet with them?

You may ask yourself some of these questions as you read through this article.
