Photographer's Note

The demand for rhino horn has soared in China and Vietnam and so the slaughter of rhino’s has also sored.
In Asia, some people believe the horn can cure ills such as cancer, diabetes and hangovers.
Last year, 1,004 rhinos were illegally killed in South Africa compared with 668 the previous year.
Most of the poaching takes place in Kruger National Park.
South Africa is home to both white and black rhinos. The conservation group “Save the Rhino” estimates there are 25,000 African rhinos left worldwide, a majority of them in South Africa.
