Lack of Resources Likely Cause of Increased Rhino Poaching

White rhinos

South Africa has been suffering lately for its surge in rhino poaching. According to one report, the reason for such a catastrophe is due to lack of specialist police units who have disbanded in 2003. Since then, there has not been any alternative to protect South Africa's rhinos and combat illegal poaching. In addition to that, current employees and people wanting to help have also been unable to do so due to lack of funding, experience, and equipment. I have a feeling that South Africa is in a great need of help in saving and protecting its rhino populations. I just hope that the government and minister will soon come to talks regarding this situation, and maybe help the nation out some way. Also, apart from that, it would also be useful if South Africa could turn to its neighbors up north for help.
