Kgaugelo Ngomane's image of a rhino dehorning titled 'Desperate Measures' was selected from more than 4,000 international entries.

Nineteen-year-old Kgaugelo Neville Ngomane from Bushbuckridge has won a prestigious environmental photographic competition.

The Young Environmental Photographer of the Year award is run by the international Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).

Ngomane's moving image of a rhino dehorning, titled Desperate Measures, was selected from more than 4,000 international entries.

Speaking to Joanne Joseph, Ngomane says he took the picture in a game reserve in Limpopo.

They were dehorning the rhino and we were called to come and capture the moment even though it was quite hard to watch so we can bring awareness to the people.

I believe the picture bring awareness as not everyone knows about dehorning.

I believe they chose it because it shows what we have to do to save the rhinos. Imagine it is like taking out someone's body part to save him or her which is quite sad.
