Zimbabwe plans to dehorn its 800 rhinos to thwart poachers who illegally killed more than 5 percent of the population of the animals in neighboring South Africa last year.
South Africa has the world’s biggest rhino population with about 20,000 of the endangered animals and most of those are of the white variety. Zimbabwe predominantly has black rhinos, which are smaller and rarer as the World Wildlife Population estimates their global number in the wild at about 4,800. Both varieties are targeted for their horns, which some people in East Asia believe cure cancer and boost virility.
I have long said that the pro-rhino-horn-trade proponents have no understanding of the current demand or users; I have not once seen any form of customer analysis, which I outlined in a previous blog post. Time and time again they have been asked to produce their user demand analysis and they haven’t; at least now they admit that they don’t understand the nature of the demand: http://rhinoalive.thinkmob.modxcloud.com/rhino-horn-trade-faq (pro-trade website)and highlight their gobsmacking belief, I quote from their website ‘The best way to learn about the market is to engage it via legal trade.’ Wow, what can you say to that ridiculous statement!...
Three-anti poaching rangers in Mozambique came under attack while escorting alleged rhino poachers to a police station near the Greater Lebombo Conservancy, the International Anti-Poaching Foundation said on Monday.
Mountains? Goats go there. Troll bridges? Goats go there. Rhinos? You're damn right goats go there.
This adorable footage was captured by staff at the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary in South Africa, which rears little rhinos orphaned by poachers.
On YouTube, the sanctuary noted that "rhinos and goats have a unique friendship" — and it's true there is something exceptional about rhinoceroses acting as step-ups allowing goats to nom on low-hanging leaves.
The sanctuary takes volunteers (and donations), meaning you too could someday have the opportunity to either clamber over rhinos or have goats clamber over you.
(KUTV) Many people wish for an up close look at animals' lives but with this you can see the world from the rhino's point of view.Care for Wild Africa is an organization that houses the largest rhino sanctuary and provides rhinos like young Thor a home.T
President Uhuru Kenyatta will in April lead global actors in setting ablaze 120 tonnes of ivory and 1.5 tonnes of rhino horn to step up the fight against poaching.
This comes a day after President Kenyatta visited Nairobi National Park to review plans for 29th and 30th April event, where he will host the inaugural Giants’ Club Summit, bringing together several African Heads of State, Hollywood actors and global conservationists.
