'Africa' Preview: David Attenborough Sees The Realities Of Rhino Poaching In Final Episode (PICTURES)

David Attenborough will experience the realities of rhino poaching in the final episode of his hit BBC One series 'Africa' on Wednesday night.

In Kenya, Attenborough has a memorable encounter with a young rhino called Elvis, brought up by the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. His horn has been removed to protect him from poachers.

The broadcaster will also examine the challenges elephants face with a growing human population encroaching on their habitat in the episode entitled 'The Future'.

He meets Maasai warriors who have become lion guardians, and witnesses local conservation in action on the tropical East coast, as he concludes the series.

'Africa' has been another ratings success for the natural history presenter, debuting with more than 8 million viewers for episode one.
