Did You Know?


At the end of the episode, aired in 1989, Richard Dean Anderson does a public service announcement saying that if the poaching isn't stopped, the black rhinos would be extinct by the year 2000. While the population numbers did indeed go down significantly in the following years, they started going back up before 2000 and by the year 2000 there were an estimated number between 1,000 and 1,300. The numbers have steadily gone up since then, though poaching has not stopped. See more »
