White rhinos are threatened, but their population are increasing. They are the largest extent of the rhinoceros species. They are located in East and Central Africa. The reason they are threatened is because of the Asian Market is a huge threat to them. They hunt them for their horns because in the Chinese culture they believe they are a good ingredient for medicine. http://wwf.panda.org/what_we_do/endangered_species/rhinoceros/african_rhinos/white_rhinoceros/
Planning and Sketches
Ideate: When I started this I knew exactly what I anted to do. I wanted to do the rhino because I have always loved them and they are being hunted for the same reason as elephants; their ivory. When I saw no one else was doing a project on them it was even better.
Feedback: When I asked others what they were doing they all seemed pretty similar, but I knew mine was different and everyone at my table supported me. I started to sketch and had too much in my picture so I just had two rhinos and one had their horns and the other did not.
Reflect: I went with my groups idea and took out the bird and cut off horn because it was too much. It also was not idealistic because the hunters would have collected the horn.
