Some places in the world are known for lush greenery, others for steep cliffs and snowy glaciers and others still for refreshing water lapping against hot beaches , but of all the landscapes in the world, Little Rann of Kutch (LRK) is known for its habitant of wild ass.
These creatures look like a cross between a donkey and a horse. They're slightly bigger than a donkey, and are fast and strong like a horse.
Unfortunately, the Wild Ass Sanctuary is in danger from several sources, and the poachers who have begun to frequent the region are not even the greatest of these. Illegal salt mining tops the list, as a full quarter of India's salt comes from mining around the Little Rann.
