ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Chehaw Park is hoping to get help for one of its animals. 

The rhino, Sam Houston, is one of 140 rhinos competing to be featured in a ca lender published by the International Rhino Keepers Association. The calendar raises funds to preserve the animal. 

"It's a pretty big deal," said Chehaw Animal Program Manager Ben Roberts. "I think all of them are endangered throughout their range, most of them probably critically."
