    South Africa is home to about 80 per cent of Africa's rhinoceros population. But they are increasingly under threat from poachers, who are trying to cater to a high Asian demand for rhino horn.

    The World Wildlife Fund says more than 200 rhinos have been killed by well-organised gangs this year alone.

    Barnaby Phillips reports from Limpopo province in South Africa.
