Dehorning has become a growing practice for the conservation of rhinos throughout Africa.
With no horns present, there is no reason for poachers to target and kill rhinos, so this is an effective, temporary safeguard against wildlife crimes. It causes no pain to the rhino, and their horns eventually grow back just like our own hair or fingernails. This is one of the most persuasive methods in our fight against rhino poaching. Currently, one rhino is killed every 19 hours in South Africa, and without dehorning the numbers would even higher. Hopefully one day we won’t need to take such measures to save this species.
