U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service allows permits for Namibia black rhino trophies

Today the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service announced its decision to allow the importation of sport-hunted black rhino trophies from Namibia, citing “clear conservation benefits”. The permits in question were given to two wealthy American sport hunters who paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for the opportunity to kill a critically endangered black rhino, of which only 5,000 remain in the world.

En dépit d’importantes avancées dans la lutte contre le trafic d’espèces sauvages, la conférence internationale qui s’est tenue au plus haut niveau aujourd’hui au Botswana se solde surtout par de graves manquements aux engagements pris par de nombreux pays il y a 13 mois à peine pour mettre fin à ce fléau.

Gestern ging in Kasane, Botswana, eine hochrangige Konferenz gegen den illegalen Wildtierhandel zu Ende. Trotz einiger wichtiger Fortschritte lautet die traurige Bilanz, dass fast die Hälfte der Länder, die vor 13 Monaten ein gemeinsames Vorgehen gegen Wildtierkriminalität beschlossen hatten, ihre Absichtserklärungen nicht eingehalten haben.
