Rhinos aren’t usually considered cuddly but they are amazing and beautiful creatures… and, they are seriously endangered!
The total myths about rhino horn have fuelled a very lucrative trade for criminals across the globe who try to supply horn products to a large customer base in places like East Asia – particularly China and Vietnam.
- Rhino horn is primarily made of the protein keratin – the same inert compound in hair and nails and animal hooves.
- Rhino horn is not an aphrodisiac, cure for erectile dysfunction, or cure for cancer. It is simply not medicinal in any way.
- The 21st Century could see the extinction of rhinos. Their continued survival and the wild depends on the end of brutal poaching practices that have already led to the extinction of certain species of rhino.
- Rhinos are protected globally under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, as well as other regional and national laws across the world.
Time is running out for animals such as the rhino who are up against increasingly aggressive and more heavily-armed poachers who hunt and kill young, old, and even pregnant animals just to cut off their horns.
