Although South Africa saw a slight decline in poached rhinos during 2015, down by a mere 40 animals, 2015 was unfortunately the worst year on record for rhino in Africa.  The amount of poached rhino reached an all time high during 2015 with over 1300 rhinos killed for their horn.  Despite commendable efforts being made, we’re still a very long way from seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
