CNN-IBN Environment Editor Bahar Dutt spoke to Environment Minister Jayanthi Natarajan on what steps are being taken to save the rhino in Assam. In the last four days, seven rhinos have been killed in the world-famous Kaziranga National Park. Rhinos are specially vulnerable to poachers as their horns sell for millions of dollars in the illegal international trade in wildlife. Kaziranga National Park in fact is considered to be the last stand for the one-horned rhinoceros, with about 2500 animals found in this world heritage site.
