A. the estimated population
B. that of their estimated population
C. more than the population’s estimated amount
D. more black rhinos than their population estimate

BDE, their has no referrent.

I take C over A. Sounds more clear to me.

"More" after ten times is incorrect because ten timed already means more - redundancy. Between A and B I choose A, b. it is not clear what antecedent has that.
