Rhino poaching is illegal and there are several organisations in place to save the rhinos and prevent poachers and traffickers. International rhino horn trade is illegal, however, a lucrative black market exists stemming from the rising demand from South East Asian countries, particularly Vietnam and China. Rhino horn is estimated to be valued at $60,000 per pound on the black market, valuing rhino horn at approximately three times that of gold.
We are joining the fight!!! All entry fees will be donated to help save the rhino!
