Poaching has claimed nearly 95 percent of the global rhinoceros population in the last 40 years, leaving the species critically endangered. Due to the incredible value of rhino horns on the illegal wildlife trade, attempts to curb poachers have largely proved fruitless. Made entirely from keratin protein, they are used in traditional Chinese medicine for their supposed healing powers. Now, a biotech startup called Pembient is hoping to help prevent the extinction of these animals by producing 3D printed rhino horns, which they aim to offer as a cheaper, sustainable alternative.
