Rhinoceros poaching has declined 53 percent in South Africa so far this year thanks in part to the strict coronavirus lockdown in place in the country, the environment minister said Friday.

During the first six months of 2020 South African authorities documented the death by poaching of 166 rhinos compared to 316 in the same period last year. EFE-EPA
