The facts are clear. Poaching is undoing decades of rhino conservation success and putting African rhinos on the fast track to extinction.
Fact: Africa used to support hundreds of thousands of black and white rhinos. Today, there are fewer than 25,000 of both species. Fact: Rhino poaching is up 3,346 percent since 2007 -- an all time high. Last year, 448 rhinos were killed in South Africa alone. Fact: Every day, two more rhinos are murdered for their horn, a coveted resource for poachers.
We've brought rhinos back from the verge of extinction before. With your help, we can do it again.
