Our Threatened World 

I want my photography to have a purpose.  I have based my theme on the extreme threat to wildlife and their habitats. 

Rhinos At Risk

The Javan and Sumatran rhinos are critically endangered. 

The estimated population of Sumatran rhinos in the wild is no more than 100. There are now 9 in captivity.

Mistaken Beliefs

Rhino horn is used in traditional Asian medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including fever, and various blood disorders. 

It is also used in some Asian cultures as a cure for hangovers.

The main market is now in Vietnam, where there is a newly emerged belief that rhino horn cures cancer.
