There are five different rhino species which consist of the greater one-horned rhino, the black rhino, the white rhino, the javan rhino, and the sumatran rhino. While the population of the white rhinos is stable, each of the four other species is threatened. Every day rhinos are brutally killed for their horns. It is believed by some that a rhino's horn is as valuable as diamonds or gold or that it can even cure cancer. A rhino's horn is actually made out of keratin, which is what your hair and nails are made of, and has no proven medical benefits. The status of each species is different but they all have one thing in common, they need our help. Conservation efforts are being made and there has been progress in the rehabilitation of the rhinos but the poaching still continues. During the early 20th century 500,000 rhinos lived in the wild. Today only 29,000 survive in the wild as a result of poaching. Just in South Africa three or more rhinos are murdered every day for their horns. There has been a 9,000% increase in poaching since 2007 and around the world middle-class individuals are becoming able to afford rhino horns which means the demand for them is rising. We need to protect these beautiful animals now more than ever. And for the rhinos who are surviving in the wild, it is becoming increasingly difficult for them to reproduce due to human barriers which are preventing the wild population from growing. If we allow poaching to continue it is possible that rhinos could become extinct within the next 10 years! Radiant Rhinos will donate 10% of all net profits to the International Rhino Foundation to help protect the rhinos and keep them from becoming extinct. Every purchase makes a difference and together we can save the rhinos! Go to www.rhinos.org to learn more about the rhinos and the International Rhino Foundation!
