www.savetherhino.org

Thirty years ago, the total world rhino population was around 70,000. Today, the figure stands at around 18,000. This website of ‘Save the Rhino’, a leading non-profit rhino organisation in Europe highlights their work and the need to act quickly and effectively to save the rhino.

www.snowleopard.org

As though inspired by the snow leopard’s graceful and stealthy movements, this website’s landing page made in Macromedia Flash is very sleek. The website gives some intriguing facts on the animal’s physical features, habitat, behaviour and breeding, preying habits, population and threats it faces.

Run by the International Otter Survival Foundation (IOSF), it contains news from around the world about these hairy, whisker-snouted creatures. These reports are not always present in the form of articles. Instead, they often take the form of short bulletin messages received from other otter conservationists…
