Suni, the 34 year old rhino was the last chance to protect the white rhinos from extinctions. He was found from the zoo in the Czech Republic. It is a landlocked country located in the central Europe
Hunting is one of the biggest reasons of this annihilation of this species. These rhinos are extremely expensive in central and eastern Africa as they are highly useful for the production of Chinese medication.
Basically, the horns of these white rhinos are utilized in the creation of medicines. According to a rough report, nearly fifty nine rhinos were sold in Kenya last year. These buyers purchased the horns at an extremely high cost of $65,000 per kg. The rate is even more than the Asian price of gold and silver.
