The 22nd is “world rhino day”, and the WWF is calling for an end to rhino poaching, which as you all know (!) threatens the survival of the rhino. South Africa which has most of the species in the world, has recently increased its protection policy with more severe prosecuting and sentencing. Nevertheless, numbers reported in the Press are indicating 287 rhinos decimated for the use of their horns, 16 or more of which were the endangered black rhino.
“This action must be met with a corresponding commitment by countries in Asia where consumer demand for rhino horn is inciting poachers” (source: http://wwf.panda.org/wwf_news/?201592/WWF-to-celebrate-World-Rhino-Day)
