    Does anyone have any information on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)? They are reporting the Black Rhino extinct. I thought I read recently that there was an increase in the Black Rhino population.

    I would certainly take that with a large dose of salt! Endangered, of course. Extinct? Not likely.

    Are the credentials of the IUCN on the up & up, or is it another scare organization looking for money?

    Not sure about their credentials, at least they stated the problem is poaching by criminal gangs. Most of these stories wrongfully blame hunters.
