For the sixth year in a row, the poaching of African rhinos is on the rise.
More than 1,300 rhinos throughout Africa were killed for their horns in 2015, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
The greatest demand for the rhinos' horns comes from China and Southeast Asia, where many believe they have medicinal powers.
