Rhino poaching in Zimbabwe

Poaching has reached alarming levels in the country's national parks and Zimbabwe risks being expelled from the Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) after losing about 30 percent of its rhino population in less than three years. CITES is an international body who duty is to regulate and supervise the trade among members states on endangered species.

The country is believed to have lost about 200 rhinos since 2012, a figure animal welfare groups consider too high.
