AN EPIC MOVE:  SOUTH AFRICA EVACUATES ITS RHINOS. An Epic Move: South Africa Evacuates Its Rhinos. After much speculation as to whether or not it would happen, the South African government has made it official. They have approved moving 500 rhinos out of Kruger National Park. Of the rhino to be moved, 260 will be sold to "private" buyers and another 250 taken to a safe location.. Who are the private buyers? Trophy hunters? https://www.thedodo.com/community/fightforrhinos/an-epic-move-for-rhinos-672657958.html

It’s a creature from a bygone age, older than mankind itself. Greed and corruption, myth and superstition, had brought the rhino to the brink of extinction.For millenia its best protection, the rhino’s horn is now its worst enemy.

RHINO KILLINGS

EWN’s Matshidiso Madia spends sometime at Haartzhoogte lodge where 11 rhino were poached in the space of 6 weeks...

 In South Africa anti-poaching groups, breeders and government are in a losing global battle against rhino poachers – the number of rhinoceros’ killed by poachers has escalated from 13 in 2007, to 528 in the first eleven months of 2012.

     For many rhino farmers like Spamer and Haartzhoogte owner Braam Van Greuning’s family, this attack signals an ending - an end to the relationship they had with all 29 rhino, an end to watching the calves fill up the reserve’s watering hole and wandering into the camp sites. It also signals the end to a much needed breeding programme that helped increase the numbers of a dying species....

    Until someone comes up with a viable plan of action, South Africa and the rest of the continent will remain on a slippery slope towards a world with only the big four to show off.

The Connection Between Species Extinction, Organized Crime, and the Spread of Disease - Poaching

The Connection Between Species Extinction, Organized Crime, and the Spread of Disease - Poaching | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

Dec. 8, 2012 - Huffington Post Green

There is no lack of reasons to join efforts to stop wildlife trafficking. Together, we need to protect the source, break the chain and stop demand.

This year alone (2012), we anticipate that 30,000 African elephants will be killed for their ivory. It is estimated that 448 black rhinos were poached in 2012 in South Africa to meet the demand for their horns in Southeast Asia and China. Today, only 3,200 tigers remain in the wild because so many have been killed for their parts. More than 25 million individual sharks will be killed this year for their fins, including many from endangered species.,,

- ▶ POACHERS KILL AN ELEPHANT MATRIARCH AND HER FAMILY IN KENYA, PROMPTING A CALL FOR HELP 

November 11, 2012 - New York Times

On October 27, Nick Brandt, a photographer and conservationist, photographed Qumquat, one of the best known matriarchs in the elephant population around Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, walking with two daughters, their young and other kin.

One day later, the old female and nearly all of the other elephants in this group were found slaughtered. Their faces had been hacked off by the poachers to be sure they gleaned every ounce of ivory from the tusks. (Click here for photographs of the result – not for the squeamish.)... http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/11/africas-ivory-driven-elephant-slaughter-continues-a-family-falls/?partner=rss&emc=rss
