Rhino poaching on the increase in Zimbabwe

A further large increase in rhino poaching in Zimbabwe in 2015 saw at least 50 rhino poached, more than double the figure lost the previous year, a conservation group, the Lowveld rhino trust has reported.

They said at least 42 of them were black rhinos, which are by far the rarest of Africa's two species.

There are reckoned to be just over 750 rhinos in Zimbabwe.
