Sadly, the remaining rhinos in Mozambique are reported to have been wiped out due to poaching. The animals had been under protection on a preserve, but 30 of the 100 rangers who were supposed to be caring for the animals are believed to have been aiding poachers, and are currently awaiting trial. Even if found guilty, it will only be a misdemeanor.
Rhino horns are a big market in certain Asian countries, primarily China
, and are used in folk remedies or for ornamental purposes. If poaching continues, experts warn that elephants will suffer the same fate.
