Photojournalism Daily: Nov. 5, 2014

2 minute read

Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Dai Kurokawa’s work on poaching in Kenya, where elephants and rhinoceroses are targeted for their tusks and horns. The ivory and keratin are then used in souvenirs and jewelry, as well as medicine, particularly in Asia. This photograph of the mutilated corpse of a pregnant black rhinoceros is devastating. Fortunately, as Kurokawa’s other images show us, there are also efforts to protect them.
