Get ready to smile – you’re about to hear the cutest sound … ever. These little rhinos are currently being rehabilitated at the Care for Wild Africa Rhino Sanctuary in South Africa, and it’s milk time! But it seems like the milk has run out, meaning it’s time to squeeee until they’re given some new bottles!

Sadly, their lives weren’t always so cute and happy. According to the video post, these orphaned baby rhinos witnessed their mothers be killed by poachers in South Africa. Across the world, rhinos are being killed for their horns, which are wrongly believed to contain medicinal properties, despite being composed of keratin, the very same protein that makes up our hair and nails. Yet, because of demand for rhino horn, wildlife poachers have pushed almost every rhino subspecies in the world to the brink of extinction. In fact, at least three rhinos are killed for their horns every single day. This often leaves little baby rhinos without their mothers, whom they so desperately need to survive.

But now in the care of a sanctuary, they’re can run around like lil’ puppies and make sure everyone knows they’re ready to eat! Don’t worry, little rhinos, we do the same thing! And we’ve got to everything we can to make sure they can live in freedom.

You want to make sure that all rhinos have the freedom to drink as much milk as they want and be little rascals! How can you help?
