That's down from 500,000 at the beginning of the 20th century.         2013 – 1,004 rhinos poached in South Africa.         2014 – a staggering 1,215 rhinos were killed by poachers in South Africa alone - roughly one every eight hours.         2015 – 1,175 rhinos were slaughtered. If the slaughter continues, 2016 could be the year that deaths overtake births. More decisive action is needed, and it is needed fast.
