Poaching is driving the rhino to extinction.In the last 10 years more than 1000 rhinos have been killed each year, and there are now thought to be only 10,000 left in the wild in Africa.In Asia the numbers are tiny. There are only 63 Javan rhinos known of in the wild, and under 100 Sumartran rhinos.
The demand is from China and Vietnam where rhino horn is mistakenly thought to have aphrodisiac and medical properties. Rhinos are being killed at an alarming rate by armed gangs because the price of rhino horn is huge. As the population gets smaller the demand increases and therefore the rhino could be extinct in under 10 years. Please help me raise money and awareness before it is too late. Thank you.
