What is the impact of rhino poaching on any community?



  1. 0 Votes

    Rhino poaching has become a serious problem in South Africa, in which well-trained groups of individuals hunt and kill rhinos solely for their horns, and escape law enforcement. These individuals are considered part of organized crime in the region because of the sophistication of performing the act without being caught and the fact that they are usually well armed with weapons. Rhino horns command huge sums of money on the black market, and is the primary attraction for these highly skilled criminals. Attempts to stop illegal horn trade have been made, and some rhino sanctuaries have even safely cut off the horns of their rhinos to deter poachers. The main problem with rhino poaching, other than the act itself, is the level of corruption people claim exists in the governments of the area that allow this to happen.
