Season 2
Do Rhinos have a Future

In 1970 Kenya had 20,000 black rhinos. By 1989 only 400 rhinos were left. They were killed for their horn, prized in Asia for folk medicine , where a kilo fetches $60K on the black market. The only way to save rhinos from extinction is to create a secure habitat for them to live and breed. Ol Pejeta Conservancy, which started with only 4 black rhinos in 1988 now has 114. It cost $10K a year to watch and protect Ol Pejeta’s rhinos, but the wildlife here is meant to pay its own way.
