“The strikingly beautiful scenery of Africa is in stark contrast to the subject matter of this National Geographic film."

The black rhino is nearly extinct and the conservation effort has turned into a war. Men devote, and sometimes sacrifice, their lives to the study and preservation of this species.

The Rhino War honestly and brutally examines the plight of the vulnerable rhinoceros as it is hunted for its horn, which, in powdered form, can be worth up to $7,000 on the black market.

Though the sights of Zimbabwe and the music of Ladysmith Black Mambazo provide an occasional peaceful respite, this film can be quite vivid and grotesque in its presentation of the rhino’s fate.
The poachers are painted as relentless murderers, willing to risk their lives for a few hundred dollars. The tale provides a brief ray of hope in the establishment of fenced sanctuaries and the care exhibited by the rangers for these lumbering beasts.

Synopsis:
In Africa, the war to save the black rhino is reaching a bitter climax. Armed poachers have swept through East Africa, slaughtering the rhino for its valuable horn - bringing the animal perilously close to extinction.
In an unprecedented conservation measure, Zimbabwe game rangers now guard Africa’s black rhino population, with the government’s permission to shoot poachers on sight.
Both man and beast are dying in this tragic conflict; the enemies are greed, corruption and ignorance in The Rhino War.
