IUCN Warns Over Black Rhino Extinction

According to reports, recently the Africa’s Western black rhino has been formally declared as the extinct species.

However, along with these black animals, several other rhinoceros subspecies have been also marked as the wiped out ones.

All these claims came to limelight after the most recent review, publicized by a foremost conservation organization accounted that gradually the highlighted rhinoceros species were on the verge on vanishing.

In the meantime, The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) also marked the Northern white rhino, which are generally found in the central Africa, as the next probable extinct wild animals. While, the Javan rhino, found in the Vietnam region was also listed in the same category.

Meanwhile, the organization asserted that the insufficient political support, to conserve these precious species, was the only reason behind the increased extinction.

The reported information also highlighted the fact that in past few years, the worldwide organized crime groups were continuously targeting to harm these vanishing animals, and as a result of which the number illegal demand for rhino horns and commercial poaching, also got augmented.

Sharing his views about the raised issue, IUCN's Species Survival Commission Chairman asserted that they are trying their level best to reinforce these actions, especially when it came to the supervision of the animal conservative habitats in order to perk up the breeding routine, so that the other sub rhino’s species could be saved from fading into extinction.”

He added, “In the case of both the Western black rhino and the Northern white rhino, the situation could have had very different results if the suggested conservation measures had been implemented”.

On the other hand, Jean-Christophe Vie, The Deputy Director of the IUCN’s Global Species program further highlighted the fact that VOA poaching was the chief danger to the continued existence of the rhinoceros.
