Vietnam bans rhino specimen imports

Specimens of rhino and several other wild animals are now banned from being traded, exported or imported, according to a new directive signed by the government.

Specifically, specimens of white and black rhinos and elephants, as well as products made from their horns are banned. Any other animals included in the list of the appendices of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES) are also not to be traded.

The CITES Management Authority Management regulates the international trade of endangered wildlife.

The specimens described above can only be imported under three circumstances.

First, the specimens serve diplomatic or scientific research purposes; are to be used for biodiversity conservation, to be displayed at a zoo, or exchanged amongst CITES authorities and its national members.

Second, the specimens are non-commercial products that meet the import requirements set by CITES Vietnam and the CITES authority from the exporting country.

Finally, specimens that acquired CITES permission for import prior to the release of this directive reserve the rights to be brought to the country.
