Rhino caretaker Mohammed Doyo with 25-year-old female northern white rhino, Najin, at Ol Pejeta Conservancy near Nanyuki, some 200km north of Nairobi, Kenya. Ol Pejeta Conservancy is home to three - one male and two females - of the last five remaining rhino subspecies on the planet. According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), more than 2,000 northern white rhinos were alive as late as 1960. However, a massive surge in poaching has left the world with only 15 animals in 1980 and only five by 2015. In Kenya, 54 rhinos have been killed by poachers in 2014, according to the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS). The world celebrated the World Wildlife Day on 03 March 2015, with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's message-˜Its time to get serious about wildlife crime. 'Picture: EPA/DAI KUROKAWA
