The three-part miniseries – “Battleground: Rhino Wars” premiers tonight (9 p.m. March 7) on the Animal Planet cable network.
Four courageous veterans of the U.S. Special Forces have joined the fight to save rhinos from the evil poachers who are killing them at an alarming rate for their horns. These great animals will soon be wiped off the face of the Earth if more is not done to help them, by shutting down the poachers.
At the other end of this horrible industry are the people who sell products derived from rhino horns and the people who buy these products. The buyers are people who live in the stone ages and believe these products have special powers – and believe it’s somehow justified to send a majestic species of animal into extinction to get their hands on these products.
Once again, the greedy and the uneducated are a blight on the Earth.
