Limerick and rhino sketch for day 18 of ‪#‎NaPoWriMo‬


There are some Javan still around
They are the rarest to be found,
Dear Rhino my friend
I won’t let you end
We want to help you keep your ground!

For my Javan rhino friends in the Ujung Kulon National Park, in Java, Indonesia. There are very few Javan’s left about 35, and they are critically endangered. For more info on the Javan Rhinos visit:
