Poaching of the one horned rhinoceros has seen an increase in the last 3-4 months and so to stop the killings, the forest officials have decided to install CCTV cameras in areas of the forest where rhinos generally are found. The horns of the rhino are sold at a handsome amount in the underground markets which forces the poachers to kill them. Very few rhinos are left in the country, and that too if we lost them to the poachers then the coming generation will not be able see the beautiful creature.
Kaziranga already has been named in the World Heritage Site but then also the poachers are approaching and killing it and making it ranked as one of the endangered spices. We hope that the installation of the CCTV cameras can stop such merciless killings of the rhinos and once again their population will flourish in our country. These creatures always attracts tourist which helps in building our GDP.
