Original text on this topic:
No white rhinos were known to have been poached in Garamba between 1985 and 1995. Rhino numbers rose over this period from 15 to 31 due to good protection. The first confirmed poaching of rhinos there since 1984 occurred in February and March 1996 when two were killed and there were other losses later. Of the horn seen on the market in 1997, it is probable that old horn, such as that found in the bush with horn borer holes, could have come from southern Sudan, but fresh horn is likely to have originated from Garamba National Park.
