Historical data has shown us that as we restrict supply lines of rhino horn, poaching figures increase. International trade bans have had no effect at all on reducing the rhino poaching onslaught in Africa.

The rhino crisis has reached epic proportions and even though there is massive division in public opinions, emotions and ideas, there is a common objective amongst all of us: saving the rhino. 
I would like to offer another perspective on the issue. It is the story of a successful conservation effort in South America, where a group of conservationists, commercialists, local communities and a few dedicated individuals brought the Vicuña back from the brink of extinction.

By John Hume

When one considers the huge interest there is at the moment in rhinos you feel heartened until you analyze the situation, then it becomes enormously depressing.  I have separated the categories of people interested in rhinos and I will list them from the worst affecting our rhinos to the best.
This document is an appeal to anyone who considers him/herself to be a rhino lover to find ways to improve the lot of our rhinos as they are in desperate need of help.

The rhinoceros is a large, primitive looking mammal that in fact dates from the Miocene era millions of years ago. In recent decades rhinos have been relentlessly hunted to the point of near extinction. Since 1970 the world rhino population has declined by 90 percent, with five species remaining in the world today, all of which are endangered.

Sustainability is the capacity to endure. For humans, sustainability is the long-term maintenance of responsibility, which has environmental, economic, and social dimensions, and encompasses the concept of stewardship, the responsible management of resource use. In ecology, sustainability describes how biological systems remain diverse and productive over time, a necessary precondition for the well-being of humans and other organisms. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems.
