South Africa: Fragmented Approach to Poaching Not Helping

Animals  (tags: wildlife, rhinos, endangered, conservation, ethics, extinction )

- 2016 days ago -
Firstly, we don't have a common vision for rhino conservation. Secondly, the business environment favours the poachers as a rhino is worth more dead than alive. Thirdly, our rhino conservation team seems to lack a sound management system.

KEEP THE RHINO'S PROTECTED FROM ALL THE POACHERS!!! Arrest anyone in the area of a Dead Rhino. These animals don't just belong to this country they belong to the World! LarryDG

Good Lord, Mankind won't be happy until he has killed off everything. Zero will be left. The Movie Planet of the Apes is fitting "ME THINKS", since they are obviously the SMARTER ONE of the two.

We have a government that does absolutely NOTHING !!!!!!!!!! All they do is talk, talk, talk - and unless it benefits them monetarily, they will do nothing. They are now talking about sending in the army, but I feel that is exactly what it is - talk !!!! These poachers should be shot on sight - no questions asked, and their bodies fed to the lions !! I am BEYOND angry - our beautiful rhinos are being murdered and they do NOTHING !!!!

It's hard to move forward when the government is divided. The only way to get your message across is to try to get those in the government out of office. That is when they start listening to you. If South Africa cannot protect their animals, then they need to give them to a country that will. With all the animals gone, then the tourism will go also. The world is at a critical time to decide if we are going to save the animals and the environment or loose both forever. There is no return at this point.
