THERE is good news for rhino lovers. At the Kaziranga National Park, home to over 1600 one-horned rhinos, poaching has been successfully curbed. In 2002, the park lost about 62 rhinos, out of which 56 died due to old age while six fell prey to poachers. Compare this with the toll between 1996-2001, when 68 rhinos were killed by poachers while 367 died due to natural causes. In the Orang National Park took, which was once a den of poachers, not a single rhino was killed in 2002.
