If it weren’t for poaching would the rhino population be OK?

    Though some factors such as pollution and deforestation contribute to the decline in the rhino population, poaching certainly tacks on a crucial amount of danger. In South Africa, which holds about 80% of the continent’s rhino population, there are only about 4,000 black rhinos (endangered) and 17,500 white rhinos (near-threatened) left. Three other species are native to southern Asia. More than 200 rhinos were poached in South Africa in late 2010 alone – a rhinoceros is lost every other day. Most of the poaching is conducted for the rhinos’ horns. Certainly, poaching has a great impact on the population, and if it were stopped, it could save rhinos from becoming extinct.
