WWF On the Ground for Black Rhinos in Kwazulu Natal

The black rhino remains under threat.

Its horn is still in demand for traditional Chinese medicine (it is used as a fever reducer), although the demand for rhino horn for dagger handles in the Middle East may have eased.
Today, only about 3,600 black rhinos survive in the wild and all 4 subspecies are listed as Critically Endangered in the IUCN (World Conservation Union) Red List.
