The question on everyone’s lips: Why are Rhinos killed?
Rhinos are brutally killed for their horns. Yes! Both species of Rhino (Black and White Rhino) have horns. One horn positioned near the forehead (a smaller sized horn) and a second horn, positioned slightly above the nose of Rhino (largest horn of the two). These horns are made of keratin, the same substance as fingernails, toenails, and hair, and just as fingernails, toenails and hair, it grows continuously and it does not have a bone core.
The truth about Rhino horn needs to be known and people need to be educated about the fact that Rhino horn has no medicinal quality, possess no superstitious power, and does not aid to any wealth or power whatsoever.
The major demand for rhino horn is in Asia, where it is used to make ornamental carvings and traditional medicine. Truly, rhino horn is as effective as clipping your finger and toenails, grinding them and sniffing them. It is an old women’s tail and a total myth.
Share this news far and wide, educate people, report usage, report trade and kill the demand for Rhino Horn once and for all. We can end the madness. You can make a difference!
Are Rhinos an endangered species?
Absolutely! The demand for Rhino Horns drives people to greed, power, wealth and money and it will ultimately lead to the extinction of the species. Rhinos are killed daily by poachers to meet the demand.
