People who profit from the ivory trade,have deep pockets. They will spend what ever is needed to get what they want, using people who ask for very little in return.

There HAS to be a way of making horns less desirable!
Whether it be that discoloring agent or medically removing them, the rhinos (and elephants) must be saved before there are none left to protect.

I pray I don't live to see the sun rise on that day should Iit come.

Respect life as it is a God given gift to every being! Those who take another's life commit murder & will account to a higher being when judgement day arrives. Thanks Jill.

Obviously the poachers are supported financially from somebody very rich...........How is possible that nobody knows nothing about it???

The only way this will slow down is if Chinese medicine is abolished. So many animals being lost to carvings and "cures". Antiquated outdated beliefs. Noting with a frown. Thanks Jill
