More than 1,000 rhino poached in 2013

More rhino than ever were poached in South Africa in 2013, say the latest figures.

Some 1,004 rhino were illegally killed in South Africa’s national parks, dwarfing the previous record of 668.

Poaching has increased by over 4,000 per cent in the last decade, and conservation efforts are crucial than ever.

Sporting Rifle magazine’s latest auction for the charity Save the Rhino has now concluded, having raised over £13,000 for rhino reserves in South Africa and Swaziland.
