The Kaziranga National Park in India is famed for its rhino population and has been so for a very long time. It is home to the one-horned Indian rhinos, which can't be found anywhere else on the planet. However, there was a time when these majestic, muscular creatures faced the danger of extinction. Poachers used to, and even today try to, kill rhinos so that they can land a rhino horn in their hands. The rhino's horn is a very precious commodity and sells for about $6000 per 100 grammes, and that makes rhinos the target of poachers. In fact, the menace of poachers had reached such a  stage that at one time, there were only a handful of these rhinos left. however, Kaziranga successfully handled the situation and today, the park hosts over 2,400 rhinos. The success story of Kaziranga is truly worth emulating if seen only from the outside. It's only when the strategy behind the rise in rhino population is seen that certain concerns emerge. Scroll down to know the whole story.
