Kaziringa park is crucial  to the survival of Indian rhinos.

 

however, poaching is ongoing, at least 16 animals have been lost this year.

 

the state govt talks  of am enhanced effort  to stop poaching, but there problems with the police and forest service working together , and  the courts do not convict suspected poachers

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
