VIDEO: Extinction warning for Africa’s rhinos

Africa’s rhino population could face extinction within 10 years, animal welfare experts have warned.

South Africa has the largest population of the species in the world but their existence is under threat from poaching.

Demand from Asian markets for their horns has led to a dramatic increase in the numbers killed. It is thought more than 1,000 rhinos have been killed in South Africa’s game reserves in 2015 alone.

Nomsa Maseko reports.
