Meet the wildlife conservation game changer

08 February 2019, South Africa, ---: A white rhinoceros and a few months old rhinoceros calf go on the territory of private rhinoceros rearing of J. Hume in South Africa's Northwest Province. There are currently more than 1700 white rhinos living on the farm. International trade in rhinoceros horns is prohibited. But in Asia, especially in Vietnam and China, horn is popular as an ingredient of traditional medicine and costs about as much as gold. This has led to a boom in poaching, although the horns consist mainly of keratin - like human fingernails. But the superstition in the healing effect is persistent. Photo: Jürgen Bätz/dpa
