EVERY 7 HOURS A RHINO IS SLAUGHTERED FOR THEIR HORN
Rhinos have survived predators, climate change, and disease for fifty million years. Asia’s soaring demand for rhino horn will loom rhinos to extinction. Declared more valuable than gold, diamonds, and cocaine, the illicit rhino-horn trade is rooted in folklore Asian medicine.
The poaching crisis in South Africa is much larger than the species being slaughtered for their sought-after horn. The killing of these prehistoric animals is one symptom of a much larger disease … filled with greed, corruption, and organized crime that permeates every level in the chain of command. From the rangers on the front lines to the Asian black markets, the poacher’s pipeline illustrates just how deep this war runs.
THE INSATIABLE DESIRE FOR THEIR HORN HAS FUELED A CRISIS HURTLING RHINOS TOWARDS EXTINCTION
