VIDEO: Rhino populations under siege

From the production's description: "As a whole, the world's five species of rhinos make up the most critically endangered large animal group on the planet. This is due to the relentless illegal poaching of rhinos for their horns for use in Traditional Asian Medicine. The Rhino Rescue Project has made this video in the hopes of raising awareness about this global crisis and is in the process of having it translated into over a dozen languages including Vietnamese, Cantonese, and Mandarin. Please share this video and join the fight to halt rhino extinction."

The world's rhinos, in Africa and Asia, are under siege. It's a war that will determine the fate of one of the world’s most iconic animals, as this new, compelling video documentary titled "The Rhino Wars," explains. The world’s rhino population has declined over 90 percent since 1970. The reason is that humans are killing them to sell their horns on the international black market. Because of this illegal practice, all five species of rhino are hovering at the brink of extinction. Join me in a commitment to not buying products made from endangered animals.
