The species is critically endangered, the result of poaching in the wild and loss of habitat. About 5,000 black rhinos exist in the African wild, an improvement from their historically low numbers about 20 years ago, when the population was less than 2,500 and on the brink of extinction, according to the World Wildlife Fund.

(Courtesy of Potter Park Zoo) The zoo’s new calf was bred as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Species Survival Plan, which aids population management and conservation within AZA member institutions.
