The Guardian: Rhinoceros DNA database successful in aiding poaching prosecutions

The Guardian: Rhinoceros DNA database successful in aiding poaching prosecutions. “A large database of rhinoceros DNA is successfully being used to prosecute poachers and those trading rhino horns, new research has revealed. While numbers of the southern white rhino – the only wild subspecies of white rhino in Africa – have grown to about 20,000, fewer than 5,500 black rhinos are thought to exist in the wild, and both species are affected by poaching.”
