Stop the poaching of Rhinos.


Why are they being poached though?


The horns fetch huge prices in some Asian countries including China and Vietnam where they are used for medicines and jewellery.


What can I do to stop the poaching? Make a post on Steemit?


That wouldn't be bad either. Well, you can play your part by being informed and informing others. It's a rare species. Rhino poaching carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in jail and a $1,000 fine.
