About this submission

With 769 rhinos poached in the last year, dehorning has become a necessary measure to save the species. Even while knowing the importance behind this, it was incredibly heartbreaking to watch an animal in so much stress and fear, to watch it lose something so essential to its being. Witnessing the extreme measures conservationists have had to take to save the rhino only make it more evident the urgentness of this situation and the need to raise awareness and fight the poaching epidemic.
