HICSA : Saving the survivors : Surgical treatment of Rhinos after losing their horns to poachers

What an interesting talk on Saving the Survivors given by Dr Gerhard Steenkamp today at the HICSA meeting (20 November 2015)
After poachers have sawn or hacked off the horns of the rhinos he and his team try to save the rhino by treating the wounds enabling those that survive to continue their lives and some even manage to breed - this is the ultimate aim of the organisation, hopefully delaying the extinction of the species.
