In the nineteenth and early twentieth century, many rhinos lost their lives in India and Nepal due to sport hunting, whereby rich people killed rhinos for pleasure. As a result of this, the population of rhinos declined to around only 12 in Kaziranga National Park in 1908. A major threat to the existence of rhinos is poaching for their horns. Let us all come together to preserve the modern day unicorn that is a marvel of evolution.
