Essay topics:

Although the sale of rhinoceros horns is illegal worldwide, rhinoceroses (Rhinos) are commonly poached (hunted illegally) for their horns, which can be sold for tens of thousands of dollars per kilogram. Rhino horns are so valuable that one type of rhino is already extinct because poachers killed too many of them. All rhinos may soon become extinct unless something is done to help save them. Several ideas have been suggested

The reading and the lecture are both about the sale of rhinoceroses horns. The author of the reading believes that the poachers sell the Rhinos for their horns which might cause their extinction. Reading provides three reasons to support this claim. However, the professor refutes each of these reasons.
First, the article states that removing Rhinos' horns, which is not harmful to the animal, makes them less attractive for poachers. However, the professor mentions that this idea is neither practical nor good for animals to survive. For dehorning, they should find the animal in wild and prepare it for surgery which needs money and time. Moreover, dehorning reduce animals' chance for survival because the animal use horn digs near water. Break branches and protect young.
Second, the passage claims that educating the consumers that horn has not beneficial material probably demanding for Rhino horn will decrease. In contrast, the speaker refutes this claim by saying that the consumers have these beliefs from ancient time and 1000 years ago, and it is strong cultural beliefs. Educating consumers is a good idea when people don't have strong beliefs about something, and in this case, education cannot affect them.
Finally, the reading believes that governments have large amounts of horns gathered from poachers, and if the governments sell horns for lower prices, people tend to buy from them instead of poachers. However, the professor claims that some people do not like to buy illegal horns. When the governments start to selling them, these people might become interested and find it acceptable thing. So the demand for horns will be increase, and a large market will be produced, and poachers continue to prey on them because of this market.
