Rhino horn currently sells on the black market for double the price of gold for its rumored curative properties. While this skyrocketing demand has proven calamitous to the rhino population in South Africa, it has also come at a massive human cost. At least 500 poachers have been killed in poaching related conflicts over the past five years - a fact that has remained largely underreported. This photo exhibit shares the stories of humans who have been and continue to be impacted by rhino poaching, and hopes to help stop the war over the horn that is, like our fingernails, just a lump of keratin.
This exhibit was made possible thanks to special support from the Bingham Fund for Student Innovation in Human Biology.
