Plea from MP to save black rhinos

BULWELL’S Labour MP Graham Allen has called for action to prevent the endangered black rhinoceros from facing extinction.

Mr Allen says rhino-poaching has increased tenfold since the beginning of the decade, with worries focused on South Africa.

Rhino horn is worth up to £22,000 per kilo on the black market, which makes it more valuable than gold or cocaine.

“Losing the black rhino for good would be a disaster, which is why I am campaigning against poaching,” said Mr Allen.
