Stop The Bloody Trade
Rhino poaching in Africa has hit epidemic proportions – in fact the situation is so that serious rhinoceros are in grave danger of extinction.
The poor rhinoceros harms no one but is being hunted like never before, mainly for use in Asian traditional medicines. In traditional Chinese medicine for instance, the horn, which is shaved or ground into a powder and dissolved in boiling water, is used to treat fever, rheumatism, gout, and other disorders, however proper medical research has proven that there is no real effect and that you would be just as well off chewing your own fingernails, as rhino horns are composed largely of the protein keratin, also the chief component in hair, fingernails, and animal hooves.
Unfortunately, at the moment, rhino horn on the black market costs more than either heroin or cocaine!
