Rhino in ruins

Over 550 South African rhinos have been killed this year so far from poaching, and even with attempts to save this iconic species, it seems that 2014 may be the deadliest year on record. The number of animals killed is already about 100 higher than at the same point in 2013, a year which saw a record 1,004 deaths.
