Original text on this topic:
Mpumalanga parks Board is in the process of implanting tiny microchips into the horns and under the skins of the rhinos in the reserve. From these chips, information will be stored on a national computerized database. This will enable wildlife enforcement officers to identify the origin of rhino horns. The data can be read by swiping a sophisticated sensor along the length of the horn.
