Earth Matters : Saving the Rhinos

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.
