Rhinos have been hunted to near extinction since the early 2000s with demand for their horns fuelled by Asian consumers who believe the keratin has medicinal and aphrodisiac qualities.
The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t just been tough for humans - it's been putting Rhinos in real jeopardy. With only 5,500 black rhinos left... it's proving incredibly difficult.
Since the pandemic has started, this has already activated poachers -due to demand for rhino horns in China and parts of Asia after the pandemic-induced slump is over.
POACHERS HAVE KILLED AT LEAST NINE RHINOS IN SOUTH AFRICA AND SIX IN BOTSWANA SINCE LAST YEAR
Lockdown appears to have given rhino poachers free time to regroup and plan strikes. Why? Because the playing field is in their favour and they won’t have as many problems moving around
COVID-19 has affected income for rhino conservancies like never before. The unprecedented overnight loss of tourism has caused devastating effects on budgets, impacting everyday activities and long-term plans. COVID-19 pandemic has closed down the global tourism industry almost overnight.
