Horn of Darkness: Rhino On The EdgePaperback £15.49 Buy Now
Despite having no predators the black rhino is on the edge of extinction. The reason is that the rhino's horn is more treasured than gold in the Orient and people will risk their lives to harvest it. African governments have spent millions on helicopters, paramilitary operations and even relocation to protected areas. Three African countries tried a radical strategy - cutting the horns. This book blends natural history and biology, adventure and adrenaline, and Africans and local attitudes. Includes historical accounts of other naturalists, a detailed look at life in the wild and a behind the scenes glimpse of scientific work and the dark side of the conservation movement. 246pp. 2000 edition
