Three black rhinos drink in the stillness of the African night, faint ripples on the water reflecting back as stripes on their grey bodies. Thick- skinned and short-sighted, black rhinos are highly endangered due to rampant poaching and the illegal trade in rhino horn. Made of compressed keratin fibres, the same material that forms finger nails and hooves, rhino horn is prized by some cultures for dagger handles and traditional medicine.
