|2,000 near-threatened white rhinos to be auctioned
The word "auction" usually makes us think of art or wine. We rarely think of threatened species. However, rich people with at least $10 million can bid for 1,993 rhinos on International Save the Rhino Day. A South African multi-millionaire conservationist, John Hume, is selling his rhinos. He started a breeding project 30 years ago with 200 animals. He increased his stock by ten-fold. He is also selling his 8,500-hectare ranch.
