Caption Details

Rhino Resting

A Rhino, Rhinocerotidae, resting and recovering, having had his horn hacked off by poachers. Rhinos are killed by humans for their horns, which are bought and sold on the black market, and which are used by some cultures for ornamental or traditional medicinal purposes. East Asia, specifically Vietnam, is the largest market for rhino horns. In 2013, a total of 1004 Rhino were slaughtered for their horns, a situation that cannot carry on, if the continuation of the species is to succeed.
