A wildlife park in Israel is celebrating a new arrival for one of its species - a baby white rhino.

"She is nursing him and taking very good care of him," said Gali Berkovich, an enrichment coordinator and animal trainer at the park. 

"Rhinos are highly endangered animals ... so this is why every birth is very important not just to us but for the entire species."
