The baby black rhino, born on August 21st at the Cincinnati Zoo, is an important ambassador for his critically endangered species. As you might imagine, caring for rhinos is expensive, and there are additional costs associated with having a calf. By attending the Rhino Baby Shower, you are helping to offset those costs.
