Rhino Wars (a.k.a. Rhino Trade Uncover) goes undercover to explore organized crime's role in the illicit trade of rhino horn. We follow the activities of the Xasavang syndicate, tracking the multi million US$ illicit wildlife trade from South Africa to its headquarters in Laos. The program doesn't shy away from exposing the brutality of rhino poached in the "killing fields". Once used only as an ingredient in traditional Chinese Medicine, rhino horn has now become the "drug" of choice by wealthy Asian communities - more expensive than gold or cocaine. The war against rhino poaching is being lost. But the time has come to stop talking about what should be done to save the rhino but what can be done to rescue the species from extinction. With the tipping point for saving the species rapidly approaching, new techniques in ranger training plans to take the fight to the poachers.
