African rhinoceroses craft habitats for species, bring delight to tourists, and generate income for authorities when people recognize the ecological and commercial values of these creatures. Poachers of rhinos, however, illegally killed increasingly more African rhinos for their horns from 2008 to 2016, reducing the values that the remaining 19,300 to 20,900 white rhinos (Ceratotherium simum) and 4900 to 5100 black rhinos (Diceros bicornis) [see illustration] give to society.
