A dehorned rhino is better than a dead rhino: Research photo competition

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


    An adult white rhino (Ceratotherium simum) patrols his territory as the sunsets on the South African bush. An almost prehistoric scene, if not for his largely missing horn. The country is in the grip of a poaching crisis with over 7000 rhinos lost over the last ten years. As an anti-poaching tactic, many rhino populations are being dehorned in the hope that it will increase their chances of survival. My research focuses on the biological impacts of dehorning, specifically whether white rhinos exhibit an observable physiological or behavioural response to the procedure
