South Africa has some of the most amazing wildlife in the world, but some animals have become really endangered.

Animal experts are getting really worried about the number of rhinos living in the wild.

More and more are getting killed by hunters, because some people think their horns can used for medicine.

There are two species of rhino in South Africa - the black and the white rhino. It's thought there are fewer than 1,500 black rhinos left in the country.

All eyes are on South Africa this year because of the World Cup, and everyone there hopes more people will see what incredible animals the country has, and help stop them heading towards extinction.
