So glad to see this...Education is part of the process also...that consumers understand that a rhino horn does nothing for your sexual prowess, or a hand from a Gorilla possesses no special magic to it...that is all bogus advertising by someone taking advantage of someone who doesn't know any better, and it's propagated throughout generations. These animals were Created before humans were and are all older life forms. It is time we learned to co~exist with Mother Earth and the four~leggeds...we are their stewards.

I think the fact that five nations have joined together in this endeavor gives it a better chance of being successful. I hope they can make it work!

This is very good news - will it work !!!.
The experiment I would like to see is human population control, Poachers love areas that are protected for wildlife - it is easier for them to find and kill it.

This is a positive collective idea, thanks to those involved. They may need help and co-operation from all the world's nations - particularly education to those Asian countries that think animals are medicine and ornaments.

Excellent, and very good news that these different nations are all working together to protect and help the animals live as nature intended.

When are they finally going to realised that what they are doing is not working? The only thing that they did not try is the only thing that will stop poaching which is poach everybody that is involved in poaching! If it is not done soon every animal on Earth will be gone forever! It is a miracle that there are some alive left especially the species that are poached more!

Thank you. I hope this results in positive gains for the animals. Whoever called this plan "another grandiose scheme foisted on Africa"?

Jean-Jacques Rousseau put it best when he said, "You are undone if you once forget that the fruits of the earth belong to us all, and the earth itself to nobody."
