Ga. kids fight to protect endangered species

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. -- Carter and Olivia Ries may be young, but they're already doing their part to save endangered species.

The Fayetteville siblings founded the conservation group One More Generation, which works to educate young people about animals in danger of going extinct.

When the children heard about a Texas auction that sold a permit to hunt an endangered black rhinoceros, they asked their parents to take them to Dallas so they could voice the opposition.

The fact that only a non-breeding male rhino would be killed was little consolation to the Ries family.

Carter, 11, and Olivia, 10, stopped by the 11Alive News studio Monday morning to talk about their protest of the rhino hunt.
