Poaching in South Africa - level 2
In South Africa, rhino poaching is a growing problem. This year, people killed more than 1,500 rhinos. That is four every day. If this continues, there will be no more rhinos or even African elephants in 25 years. This is because people want the horns from the rhinos and the elephants.
One of the people who is trying to help rhinos is Prince Harry. He worked with South Africa’s conservation experts this summer.
Recently, he met with rangers at the Kruger National Park in South Africa. He wants to raise concerns over the illegal trade of rhino horns.
Difficult words: poaching (the illegal killing of a wild animal), conservation (the action of conserving – saving something), raise concerns (to make people think about something).
