When a risk becomes reality

When a risk becomes reality

A very difficult day for our team; this morning we located a group of five elephants very close to our central base.

Our team left on foot backed up by helicopter.

We anaesthetized the first elephant from the ground.

He continued advancing forward, making his way through the extremely dense vegetation. We lost sight of him for several minutes.

By the time we found him, he had fallen into a swamp.

The vet intervened immediately; he administered the antidote to wake him up, and carried out electric shocks, all in vain.

Les cornes de la discorde – L’impact mortel du commerce de la corne de rhinocéro

D’après une synthèse de plusieurs rapports économiques sur le commerce légal et illégal de la corne de rhinocéros, il n’est pas certain qu’un assouplissement de la législation commerciale contribue à protéger les rhinocéros du braconnage, et il pourrait même se révéler contre-productif.

Hot on the heels of the enactment of Kenya’s Wildlife Conservation and Management Bill 2013, two Chinese nationals have, in a span of two days in two separate incidents, been arrested in possession of ivory.

Under the new law the two men, if found guilty, will face massive fines and stiff jail sentences.

The only certainty of the impact of legalizing trade in rhino horn in an attempt to save rhinos from poachers, is uncertainty, a review of economic reports on the legal and illegal markets in horn has found.

Commissioned by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) in late 2013, the report Horn of Contention by Economists at Large reviewed a variety of formal and informal studies into the economics of trade in rhino horn.
