 Rhino poaching (especially across Africa) has reached unprecedented  levels; most rhino species across the world are highly endangered and the  current poaching pressure has arisen largely as a result of demand for rhino  horn in China. Similarly elephant poaching across Africa has now reached  levels not seen since the 1980′s, also driven by demand for ivory from  China.
