Rhinos In Mozambique Likely Extinct, Expert Says; Elephants May Be Next

Mozambique's rhinoceros population was wiped out more than a century ago by big game hunters. Reconstituted several years ago, the beasts again are on the brink of vanishing from the country by poachers seeking their horns for sale in Asia

I got an idea for the Chinese, they use the same thing that the first emperor of China Qin Shi Huang used?
He would ingest mercury pills, which was made by his court scientists and doctors, Ironically, these pills were meant to make Qin Shi Huang immortal.

Qin Shi Huang feared death and desperately sought the fabled elixir of life, which would supposedly allow him to live forever.

We should be taking care of the biosphere and all its creatures. Terrible.

So sad, they pay rangers to protect them, and they in turn tell the poachers where to find them. Soon there will be no rhinos or elephants anywhere, maybe zoos. Thanks Agnes.

It's the same shame like with the tigers in Indonasia.

It's horrendous, horrible, ... Greed has won again. When all rhinoceroses and elephants have disappeared, poachers will have lost what enabled them to make a lot of money. If they can't understand that, they mustn't be very smart.
