Put the ‘kind’ back in ‘mankind’-unknown
Do you know that world Rhino day is celebrated on 22nd September every year?
There are 5 species of rhinos.
- White Rhino
- Great one Horned Rhino
- Black Rhino
- Sumatran Rhino
- Javan Rhino
4 of the 5 species remaining are threatened with extinction.
This is happening because of poaching (fewer than 12,000 rhinos remain in the world)
There is a growing demand for rhino horns.
The main consumers are said to be from people in China and Vietnam, as a status symbol or for medicinal values which include treatment for impotence.
You name the disease, it can be cured by rhino horn preparations, a false narration popularised among the population.
There is no scientific evidence to prove that rhino horn has medicinal value.
Human greed has crossed the limits.

Do you approve of unwanted killings?
Thank you for your visit.
