Rare Rhino Is Born – level 3

01-11-2017 15:00

An eastern black rhino calf has been born at a zoo in the Czech Republic. The zoo, which boasts the most rhinos in Europe, says that the calf is lively and healthy.

Only a few hundred eastern black rhinos remain in the wild, where they are under threat from poaching, so baby’s arrival marks an important step in protecting the species from extinction.

Her mum will need to care for the little calf for at least two years before she can join others from the zoo who will return to Africa.

Difficult words: boast (say how proud you are of something), poach (illegally hunt or catch).
