South Africa's threatened rhinos


South Africa is home to about 80 per cent of Africa's rhinoceros population. But they are increasingly under threat from poachers, who are trying to cater to a high Asian demand for rhino horn.

The World Wildlife Fund says more than 200 rhinos have been killed by well-organised gangs this year alone.
