Video: The Lawrence Anthony Foundation Aims to Protect the Last Rhinos

The Last RhinosDuring the last few years of his life, Lawrence Anthony was on a mission to save rhinos from extinction, after his orphaned rhino Heidi was slaughtered by poachers for her horn.

In 2001 he set up The Lawrence Anthony Foundation dedicated to the conservation of black and white rhino. The story of his campaign is told in his book The Last Rhinos.
