Rhinos in the wild are threatened by hunters who steal and illegally sell their horns.
The rhino’s in Kenya’s Ruma National Park face another threat:
bacteria that may be found in the animal’s water supply.

resulting in a rise in the rhino’s endangered status.
Endangered describes animals and plants that soon may not exist
because only a small number of them remain alive.
Endangered also described something that is in danger of being harmed or lost.
