South Africa’s threatened rhinos

More than 200 rhinos have been killed this year alone by gangs of well-organised poachers.

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.
