  1. Efforts to curb the deadly trade in rhino horn appear to be gaining traction, with a poll finding that demand for the animal part in Vietnam has dropped by more than a third over the past year. After a year-long public information campaign in Vietnam, only 2.6% of people in the Asian country now continue to buy and use rhino horn, a decrease of 38%. Importantly, there has been a 25% decrease in the number of people who think rhino horn, which is made of the same material as fingernails and hair, has medicinal value. However, 38% of Vietnamese still think it can treat diseases such as cancer and rheumatism. read the full article in The Guardian here
  2. ~ This June, 2017 article from Motherboard presents information from an Interpol press release describing an investigation of illicit animal products from highly endangered species being offered for sale on the dark web. Interpol notes that the total amount of illegal animal products was relatively low, compared to similar products sold by other means. The concern is that the dark web is exceedingly difficult to regulate, hence the threat remains of such illegal commerce.
  3. ~ This article, from The Atlantic, explains the increasing custom of consuming rhino horn in Vietnam, where the affluent give it to each other to enhance their status. In Lãn Ông street in Hanoi's Old Quarter, traditional medicine shops offer rhino horn as a hangover cure, young mothers use it to treat feverish children, while others view it as a cancer cure. There are “rhino-wine associations” in which the use of powdered rhino horn is thought to mitigate the intoxicating effects of heavily imbibing alcohol.

  5. Tonight in London there is a debate between Will Travers and John Hume on the subject - SHOULD THE GLOBAL TRADE OF RHINO HORN BE LEGALISED? JOIN JOHN HUME, SOUTH AFRICA’S LARGEST PRIVATE RHINO BREEDER AND A PIONEERING ADVOCATE FOR LEGALISING HORN TRADE, WITH BORN FREE FOUNDATION PRESIDENT AND CEO, WILL TRAVERS FOR A MODERATED DEBATE BY ECOLOGIST AND AUTHOR DR. CRAIG PACKER AT THE HISTORIC ROYAL INSTITUTE OF GREAT BRITAIN I have a ticket to attend but have an injured foot and can't walk very well at the moment - so I can't attend. It would be a shame to just waste the ticket so if there is a SAFARITALKER out there who can get along to Albemarle St W1 by 7pm tonight just let me know and I will email you the ticket.
  6. ~ This article, a special investigation by the U.K. Daily Telegraph, explains in considerable detail the laissez-faire approach to selling illegal African wildlife parts to affluent Chinese consumers which occurs in Laos. Vientiane is described as being the center of the “Wild East” of flagrant sales of ivory carvings which Chinese consumers are assured is genuinely African and “the best”. Rhino horn is proffered for Chinese traditional remedies. The combination of lax enforcement, widespread corruption and a “wink and a nod” attitude by the Chinese sellers and consumers results in what a Laotian State-run newspaper described as being “trafficking networks continue unabated”.

Mozambique's environment minister said that the action indicated that Mozambique will not tolerate poachers.
  9. Steve and Ann Toon are 2 of my favourite wildlife photographers. But that does not mean I am any less sceptical about the viability of this idea... surely the mere fact that it is synthetic will mean those wanting it for it's supposed medicinal properties will still want genuine rhino horn. It is a totally different case but how many people believe that manufactured diamonds are as desirable as for the real thing? click here to read the interview
  10. This article was posted on >> South Africa is seeing success in combating rhino poaching in recent months and, to ensure the trend continues, the country is considering legalising trade in rhino horns to stop the killing of the animals. Rose Masela, head of national wildlife information management at the South African Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA), said her department has covered some ground in slowing the rate of rhino poaching. Masela said legalizing the trade in rhino horn is one solution government is mulling. She said this will drive down the price of rhino horns, hitting the poachers in the pocket in the process. “There’s very little we can do about the belief in the use of rhino horn that exists in other countries. Legalization would be a more medium-term solution,” she said. << Read more:

  12. In the ‘Rhino racketeering’ chapter of his book ‘The UN’s Lone Ranger: Combating International Wildlife Crime’, author JOHN SELLAR describes the incredible increases in rhino poaching in South Africa during the late 2000s, accompanied by other criminality around the world where hunting trophy horns and antique horn-based items were being stolen from museums, taxidermists and auction houses. These crimes were thought initially to be prompted by a belief that crushed rhino horn could treat cancers. What’s next, though? I thought this extract from John Sellar's book might be of interest as the debate on legalising the trade in rhino horn is one which has proved lively on Safaritalk. This is taken from South Africa's Daily Maverick. >>> It was inevitable that someone, at some point, would suggest that the answer to all these problems would be simply to legalise trade in rhinoceros horn. Such proposals began to be voiced in around 2008. Proponents argue that since rhinos can be de-horned, owners should be allowed to do so, and to sell the horn to consumers. It appears that the government of South Africa is considering this approach. One wonders whether there is any link between the major crisis presently facing South Africa and its offer to host the next CITES Conference of the Parties, scheduled for 2016. Several questions have come into my mind when considering the legal trade option: Will there be enough horns to meet the current demand, which presumably may continue to increase, especially if prohibitions on consumption were to be lifted? Could demand be met if the nature of the demand alters, moving, for example, from crushed horn, which requires small amounts to be taken from a whole horn, to a desire to possess whole horns as status symbols? Presumably, if legalised, prices for horn will lower. If so, will the trade be financially viable? While South Africa might, in terms of the Convention, argue that it could regulate exports in a sustainable manner, which are to be the importing countries? It takes two to tango and, at present, no country in Asia allows legal domestic trade in rhinoceros horn. Unlike the situation with elephant ivory, there are no assessed, authorised or regulated domestic markets elsewhere in the world to which traders in South Africa could sell trimmed horn. By early 2013, no Asian country and no nation elsewhere in the world had announced its interest in resuming legal trade in rhinoceros horn. If I were a criminal in Asia, might I not wish to undercut trade from Africa and kill rhinos in my own area instead? Given how close some rhinoceros populations in Asia are to the extinction tipping point, this would require very careful consideration. However, what resonates with me most is that there seems something almost immoral in legalising this trade. Its purpose, if the efficacy of rhino horn as a medicine is as questionable as it currently appears, would be to sell a non-peer-reviewed treatment to victims of one of the world’s most debilitating and fatal diseases, a treatment that would do them no good whatsoever. The fact that rhinoceros horn may, on occasions, have something of a positive, placebo-like impact on a cancer sufferer is surely no justification for making it available to others. I am also troubled by the unspoken undertones in these discussions, involving one part of the world supplying another, which, to my mind, might be seen as straying perilously close to discrimination or, at worst, racism. Is an end in sight? Regrettably, I see none. Although appreciation of the seriousness, organisation and sophistication of crimes affecting rhinoceroses is now much more widespread, rhinos continue to be killed. The numbers poached seem set, as I write this in 2013, to outstrip the totals of previous years. One hopes that the days are long gone when an intercepted smuggler, carrying five rhino horns between Africa and Asia, was allowed to proceed on his way, customs officers having confiscated the contraband. And yet that occurred as recently as 2008. The follow-up to interceptions or the exchange of information between agencies, nationally and internationally, appears at times as dismally inadequate for rhinos as it has sometimes been for elephants, tigers and so many other endangered species. I remain concerned at the potential for fraud within the antique world. There is clearly a legitimate trade in antique rhino horn products, especially Chinese libation cups. Although some of these products and old trophies, sold through English auction houses, for example, were undoubtedly intended for clandestine purposes, the prices paid for others were far too high for them to be crushed down into powder for medicinal use. This, in itself, is what makes me anxious. As I mentioned before, organised crime has many tentacles and they stretch far and wide. Their aim is to seek out every crevice or corner where another situation can be exploited for profit. Experience has shown us that items carved from fresh elephant ivory have been disguised and passed off as antiques and subsequently sold at high price. Personally, I believe it is only a matter of time before the counterfeiting of antique rhino horn items is uncovered. The very significant increase in both the value of, and interest in, Chinese objets d’art offers criminal exploitation opportunities. It was, however, when I learned that a single rhinoceros horn libation cup had sold at auction in the United States in 2010 for over 900,000 dollars that I became utterly convinced: it can only be a matter of time before fraud is detected. (NOTE: In May 2014, the author’s concerns were shown to be well-founded when a Chinese national was sentenced to 70 months’ imprisonment in the United States for acquiring horns for just such a purpose.) During the period since my retirement from CITES, I have read that crushed rhino horn is now being taken in parts of the southeast and far east of Asia as a treatment for a hangover. Some horns are apparently also being acquired as a status symbol for their owner, just as some buyers seek a tiger skin for display in their homes or offices. As I prepare to move away from species-specific issues, I am conscious of another concern which has long troubled me. The consumption of wildlife has, over the whole of man’s existence, taken myriad forms, with many different demands and motivators. Some of these have almost been like fashions, emerging for a period and then drifting away. Who could possibly have predicted that rhino horn would one day be thought of as a cure for cancer? Importantly, who can predict what bizarre or unexpected demand might suddenly appear next? It is this history of use and abuse which convinces me that we must halt our current species-specific approach. We must stop thinking of wildlife crime but think, instead, simply of crime. If we do not, then we will constantly be running to catch up, as we have done in relation to elephants, rhinos and tigers, whenever some new illicit demand presents itself and begins to drive yet one more species from the conservation-concern category into one of extinction-endangerment.

  13. Pro-Rhino Message. You probably heard or seen the new campaign where some individuals and even officials of CITES are advocating for burning rhino horns. As a pro-rhino activist, which means I am against illegal trade in rhino horn that kills rhinos and people of Africa due to poaching activities, my response to such actions: "It is not sustainable to promote the burning of rhino horn, which is a renewable wildlife product and non-harmful to humans. Demand in rhino horn does not kills rhinos, it’s the method demand gets supplied. Under current law, where trade is not allowed, horn costs rhino a life because there is no legal way to obtain it. There was NEVER a legalized trade in rhino horn, only unregulated trade which was banned by CITES in 1977. Time to change the law and legalize trade in rhino horn, to give a rhino cup of life. New law will create opportunities and right conditions for African communities to become proud rhino custodians instead of becoming rhino poachers. This approach would save rhinos for future generations. Save rhino life not rhino horn. Horn grows back. Albina Hume, pro-rhino activist."
  14. In a nighttime theft, robbers broke into a South African provincial parks office and used a machine tool called a grinder to break into a safe holding several dozen rhino horns worth a fortune on the illegal market in parts of Asia. Smart move really - if you're a trader in illegal ivory. Much easier than having to hunt and kill 40 rhinos. So, is this a good reason for countries to burn/destroy their stockpiles? read the article here
  15. Poachers are killing the animal in record numbers because of its horn, but experts say education and conservation can save the species. Last year may have been the worst on record for rhinos, but 2014 hasn’t started off well, either: 6 rotting carcasses, horns hacked off, were discovered in the first week of January in South Africa’s Kruger National Park. “It was a particularly bad year for rhinos, especially here,” says Jo Shaw, manager of the World Wildlife Fund’s rhino program in South Africa. “We still have to get a final number, but I won’t be surprised if it crosses 1,000.” But it’s not the end of the species, she says. “It’s very distressing, every time, to hear another (rhino) has died a painful death, but I am confident it can be stopped. It has been done before.” Jo Shaw and Tom Milliken, the program leader tracking elephant and rhino trade for TRAFFIC, a global monitoring network, both agree that even though 2013 was a heart-wrenching year for rhinos, the animals will not go extinct in the wild. “At this point, rhinos are breeding well,” says Shaw. “The number of babies being born is higher than (number of) rhinos being killed. I still think awareness is the key to curb the killing.” Optimistic article by Raveena Aulakh in Canada's The
  16. Interesting article from the China-Africa Reporting Project on China's demand for rhino horn. The diversity of trafficing routes gives an indication of why the flow is so hard to interdict. >> The trafficking routes of rhino horns seized on their way into China vary in every case. Poached in Southern Africa, the rhino horns may be shipped in cargo holds from Cape Town or Maputo. They may also be transported to other African countries like Nigeria first and then shipped among timber or agricultural products to China. In other cases horns have been mailed or shipped to North America or Europe, and then flown on to China. “Mailing and cargo holds are the two main channels for rhino horn smuggling into China. The horns can also be transferred among large amounts of ivory,” << click here for the full article
  17. Karl Amman's excellent video on the Rhino Horn Mafia - The Hanoi Connection shows how dangerous it would be to legalise the trade. It seems that 90% of product sold in Asia as Rhino horn is fake.

  19. Dear President Zuma, By JIM RIES | Published: Oct 27, 2012 Rhino poaching is nothing new, but what is new is the increased demand for rhino horns and the desperately low numbers of remaining rhinos left in the wild. When Olivia and Carter started One More Generation, it was so they could raise awareness to the issue of so many species being added to the endangered list. It seems like everytime you turn around, there is a new, even longer list of species in jeopardy of becoming extinct. OMG has teamed up with the folks at SPOTS (Strategic Protection of Threatened Species) in South Africa in an effort to help raise awareness to the dire issue of Rhino Poaching. Unless we can motivate South African President Zuma to take stark actions to immediately curb poaching in South Africa, Rhino’s will go extinct in our lifetime. We are asking students (and adults) to help us show President Zuma how urgent it is for him to get involved. We can make a difference for these animals by writing a letter to President Zuma asking him to do something now. Our goal is to collect 1,000 letters and or drawings addressed to President Zuma. We plan on having the letters personally delivered to President Zuma to show him and his staff how much we in America (and all over the world) care for these animals. Why has poaching for Rhino horn increased so dramatically? South Africa is home to the Big Five. While all of them are at risk, on average two rhinos are killed every day through illegal and cruel poaching. The reason for the increasing slaughter is that the horn is sold into the Asian traditional medicine markets. Rhino horns are composed largely of the protein keratin, also the main ingredient in hair, fingernails, and animal hooves, yet is has no proven medicinal value. In many cases the horn is hacked off while the animal is still alive. It is time to stop the animal cruelty and diminish the belief that the horn has any proven medicinal value. Ground-up Rhino horn powder is now valued at six times the price of gold. How are Rhino’s Killed? Syndicates use helicopters to shoot or dart a rhino with a tranquillizer gun to bring the animal down and then close in, hacking the horn off and then leaving the animal to bleed to death. However, Rhinos are more often shot with high powered hunting rifles than tranquilized with a dart gun. Often, if the cow has a calf, it is killed as well, both for the little bit of horn that it may have, but also to prevent it from interfering with the poachers as they hack the mothers horn out. Sometimes poachers are highly skilled professional hunters, who operate at ground level in a highly organized manner, with logistical support in the form of vehicles and other back-up. Less sophisticated poaching groups may consist of 4 to 6 individuals who are well armed and will infiltrate a community to get information on rhinos in the area. They will plan their kill, often shooting the animal in the knee to keep it from running away, or killing it outright. The animal is usually slaughtered and the horns are usually roughly removed with an axe or panga. Here is a video that breaks down the cold hard facts for you: Why you should get involved: Each and every one of us are supposed to be stewards of this planet and all it’s inhabitants. We are all they have got and they are depending on us to help them. Survival of many other species depend on us successfully fighting for the rhino’s survival. If the iconic rhino can’t be saved, what chance do the lesser known endangered species have? Your involvement in playing a role in conservation will be showcased on the OMG and SPOTS websites. Make this part of your resume one day. It is something to be very proud of – show the world you did not wait for someone else to take action and solve the problem.
