In Nepal, the greater one-horned rhinoceros – also known as the Indian rhinoceros – is increasing in numbers, after the third year since 2011 without any poaching. Efforts are underway to relocate some of the rhinos from one national park to another, to reduce overcrowding and the risk of disease. Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks with Vicki Croke, host of WBUR’s The Wild Life, about the Indian rhino population.
