There are 5 species of Rhino with populations - The Sumatran (30), The Javan (18), The Greater One-horned Rhino in India (2,100), The African Black (3,142) and The White Rhino which has 2 populations in Africa - The Northern Population (2) and the Southern population (10,078). Weighing over 3 tonnes, White Rhinos are the 2nd largest land animal after elephants and are named after the Africaan’s word ‘wyd’, which means wide, because of their square shaped lips. Their principal threat is being hunted for their horns which are prized for medicinal purposes. Their horns grow up to 7 cms (3 inches) a year and are made of Keratin, like our hair and nails. Their horns, their principal source of protection in Nature, has become their Achilles Heel where humans are concerned.
There are 2 Pink Lakes in Western Australia, Lake Hillier and Lake Esperance. Esperance is no longer pink. Our bracelet symbolizes Hiller. Lake Hillier in Western Australia is a natural wonder, one of Nature’s pink lakes. Sitting on small island in the Indian Ocean, Middle Island, the lake measures just 600 meters long. Experts still debate the precise reason why she’s pink, all linked to its incredibly high salt content and the combination of algae (cellular plants) and bacteria (living cells with DNA) who cohabit the lake and whose colors and secretions turn Lake Hiller Pink. Lake Esperance, another pink lake in Western Australia, is no longer pink due to over harvesting of its salt, an example of the damaging effects of human interventions in Nature. Pink Lake Hillier lies beyond human intervention, an elegant reminder to us all of the enduring beauty offered to us by Nature.
