Conservation crisis — the rhinoceros in India

  • Esmond Bradley Martin (a1), Chryssee Bradley Martin (a1) and Lucy Vigne (a2)

Extract

The greater Indian rhinoceros, on the verge of extinction in India 80 years ago, has recovered dramatically with conservation help. In 1980 there were 1250 in the country. At about that time, however, poaching suddenly started to become a serious problem, and since then over 200 animals have been killed. The authors explain why and suggest how this reverse could be stopped.
