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.

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.
