Rhinos may be saved from extinction through the contributions of private rhino conservators. John Hume breeds rhinos and cuts off their horns in a bid to keep the animals safer from the poaching onslaught in South Africa at present. It is his hope that international trade in rhino horn will become legal; partly so that pressure will be relieved from wild populations of the threatened animals but also so that incentives will be in place for more people, as well as impoverished communities – which are currently fertile recruiting grounds for poachers – to breed and protect rhinos.
John and his wife, Albina Hume have over 800 rhinos on their wildlife sanctuary and it is their dream and passion to breed 200 rhinos per year.
