Sad update on rhino poaching

During the last World Rhino Day (September) we asked everyone again to be aware of the increasing problem of rhino poaching. It is sad to report that we’ve already exceeded the numbers of poached rhinos this year compared to last year.  The latest statistics show a total number of 570 rhinos killed in South Africa of which 347 in the Kruger National Park. In total 230 arrests were made (including 10 receivers and 18 couriers) and also this year quite a few rangers/patrollers and poachers were killed during the ‘rhino war’ in the Kruger.
