How Can Rhinos be Saved? Save the Rhino.

Love Animals and Save Rhinoceros (Gainda; गैंडा)
I have never supported the killing of animals for any purpose. Also, decreasing numbers of endangered rhinoceros by poachers who are protected under politicians and mafias is the subject of anxious for me in these days. Because of exaggeration, people are usually confused with the horn of the rhino has the medicinal value or other magic power. But no such kind of this thing is associated with the horn. In fact, this is only compact keratin as same as our hair.

How cruelty can poacher show for this useless horn just for a little money.
Unfortunately, they are unwilling to know, the more money they can earn by saving these rhinos and pursuing tourism or after the natural death of the animal.

Nepal has the prestige of being longest history as well as power. But her prestige has been declining for a few centuries and still not even in stationary phage. Government of Nepal has not been focusing to develop science and technology for revenue generation and to make a better life of Nepalese, what a pain! Tourism as a little hopes and is one of the major revenue generating sectors. The national park is one of the major destinations for tourists. It could be broadened and managed well for more income. One horned rhinos (Rhinoceros unicornis) are only found in Nepal and India as their natural habitat. Nepal has gifted a pair of rhino to Pakistan, where it is extinct. Caring and saving of rhinoceros, tiger and other many endangered animals found in Nepal help not only to attract tourists but also to preserve our biodiversity. I think the rate of killing of such endangered animals can be retarded by a combination of the following strategies.

  • Awaking the locals about the environment and wildlife because local people also have been found to be involved in killing or stealing of the horns of Rhinos in some cases. Also, they can co-operate with security personnel to handcuff the poachers.
  • Installing the secret cameras at least the place where rhinos defecate. Rhinos prefer to defecate in a single place. The heap of dung can guide poacher to trap and kill the rhinos.
  • Establishing the security post especially in the border side because poachers are abusing some flexible rules and facilities of both countries.
  • Although there is fine but it should be more strict.
  • If you have any idea, please share.
