Wildlife authorities in one of Africa's most popular national parks will no longer tell visitors where to find its rhinoceroses after an upsurge in poaching in recent months.

Good, but another better late than never situation.

They can try to protect them, but unless the economic incentives to poach aren't address, they are fighting a losing batter. The more a rhino horn can fetch on the black market, the more incentive those poachers have to keep on poaching.

The economics also need to be addressed.

Unless they've been allowing visiters in with guns, I think this is a waste of breath and time!

At this point it looks like the headline should be "........ protect its rhino", with the alarming numbers of killed rhinos and the alarming numbers of rhinos left, very soon we'll be talking about the last rhino. Such a tragedy!
