Episode Summary

Indian Rhinos
Rhino horn still fetches a high price in Traditional Asian medicine, not as an aphrodisiac as commonly thought, but as anti-inflammatory, despite there being no proven scientific evidence for this. Because of poaching, there are now just 2,500 great one-horned rhinos left in the wild. The majority of poaching, and smuggling, takes place in desperately poor countries such as Nepal, where the value of a rhino horn Is relatively small to Western countries, but the equivalent of a month's salary over there. The Extinction Sucks team, Aleisha Caruso and Ashleigh Young, hold a 'Missing Horn' funk night in the their local pub in order to raise vitally needed cash for the Nepalese anti-poaching teams. They travel to Nepal and see some of the country's remaining 408 magnificent rhinos first hand, within the shadows of the Himalayas.moreless
