Protecting the world's rhino population will be the focus of a Columbus Zoo event Nov. 14.
The presentation is titled "Year of the Rhino — What's Next?"
The rhinoceros population has been under assault from poaching, forest loss and habitat development in Asia and Africa. There are as few as 100 Sumatran rhinos left, and even fewer Javan rhinos.
Proceeds will benefit the foundation's efforts, with a reception and silent auction after the presentation.
