Forget The Drug War–Time To Throw Those Forces Into The Poaching War
APRIL 3, 2013
tags: extinction, military assistance, poaching, rhino horn

$300,000 on the run.

This excellent, in-depth look at the forces driving rhino poaching, and the difficulties of stopping it in time, won’t make you optimistic. But it’s one of the best articles I’ve read yet:

The figures are shocking: At the beginning of the 20th century there were 500,000 rhinos across Africa and Asia; in 1970 there were 70,000; today, there are fewer than 29,000 rhinos surviving in the wild.

Killing rhinos for their horns is a “complex problem where values of tradition and culture have been corrupted in the name of commercial exploitation”, says Jason Bell, Southern Africa director of the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).

“Be it elephants and ivory, tigers and tiger parts, rhinos and rhino horn, the endpoint is the same – profit. And that profit is being chased down in the most brutal fashion by organised crime syndicates who are fearless in their pursuit of the prize,” he says.

In the 1970s, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) banned international commercial trade in rhino products.
However, the black-market trade in wildlife is now a multibillion-dollar industry, trafficked on much the same lines as arms and illegal drugs.

“The recognition that illicit wildlife trafficking is a new form of transnational organised crime should be a wake-up call to governments worldwide,” says Wendy Elliott, global species programme manager of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). She wants governments to increase their law-enforcement responses to wildlife crime.

A number of things jumped out at me. 1) Any commodity that is worth $66,000 a kilo (making an average rhino horn worth more than $300,000) is going to motivate poachers to go to almost any length, and take any risk, to cash in. 2) The complete disconnect between the myth of rhino horn’s medicinal qualities (cure cancer?) and the reality (the horn is just keratin, the same substance as human fingernails). And 3) the involvement of organized crime, which is not a surprise given the value of the trade.

You put all those things together, and it is hard not to feel that the human forces driving the poaching (greed, obsession with magical cures and medicines, an almost complete lack of compassion or interest in preserving the wild) have built up such powerful momentum that even extreme anti-poaching efforts will not buy enough time to change the underlying forces.

A rhino is tagged and ear notched by conservationists in Malilangwe, Zimbabwe.

That doesn’t mean that the fight to stop poaching and the rhino horn trade should be abandoned. If anything, it needs to be intensified dramatically. And here is the one thing I think needs to be happen as we look at catastrophic poaching on land and at sea around the globe: stopping it needs to become a priority goal for military cooperation and assistance programs. Pull the forces and investment that we waste on the drug war and throw them into the fight against poaching and you might see some impressive results. It’s not guaranteed to turn the tide in time, but there is a desperate need for a radically different approach because what we are doing now–whether it is elephants, rhinos, tigers, sharks or regulation-evading factory fishing ships–simply isn’t working well enough.

Getting there would require a transformative update of our notions of global “security” and “threat.” But dealing with climate change and protecting the fragile ecosystems we depend on are missions that are as (or more) important than most of the traditional missions we accept without question.

Protect Endangered Rhinos from Poacher Gangs


Target: Smt. Jayanthi Natarajan, Minister of India's Environment and Forests Ministry
Sponsored by: Care2.com
Kaziranga National Park turned into an arena for bloodshed recently when a gang of armed poachers fought off park rangers for several hours in India to kill an endangered rhinoceros. This was the thirteenth atrocity of its kind in two months, the result of a recent surge of poaching in the area. Tell Minister of India's Environment and Forests Ministry, Smt. Jayanthi Natarajan, that the government cannot continue to ignore this threat! Get park rangers the adequate funding and support they need to protect endangered rhinoceroses. One-horned rhinoceroses were on the brink of extinction only twenty years ago. Two-thirds of their global population inhabit the Kaziranga National Park, where illegal activity occurs at the expense of ranger's safety and the lives of rhinos. If the government fails to check these poachers, many believe the rhinos are on the path to extinction. Tell Minister Natarajan to help these endangered animals, heighten the security in Kaziranga National Park!

Game Rangers Unite Against Rhino Poaching

MPUMALANGA - Game rangers in the Kruger National Park have signed an agreement with private game farm owners surrounding the park to combat rhino poaching. Nine owners of private reserves on the southern boundary of the park have formed Game Rangers United, a body that works with the anti-poaching teams. Head of special projects in the park, General Johan Jooste said the agreement is a breakthrough in their campaign to fight poaching. "We share each other's information. If we have to go into each other's areas in pursuit of poachers there's a mechanism for command on control and I am undertaking that we only deal with accredited game rangers and anti-poaching qualified." But Jooste said the same agreement doesn't exist on the eastern and northern boundaries of the trans-frontier park. He said poachers are exploiting this loophole.

According to Jooste rangers aren't able to track suspected poachers once they pass over into Mozambique through the trans-frontier. "There are a lot of talks on the go and we're working hard on that so that at least when we get to the border we work with rangers on the other side where the pursuit is continued. Right now it is stopped dead in its tracks because there's an international boarder."

Minister calls for shoot to kill policy in Botswana
Posted by Deborah Schrenk (campaign founder)

Tell your friends about this
SHARE THIS NOTE

The Deputy Speaker of the Botswana Parliament, Pono Moatlhodi, has called for the immediate introduction of a shoot to kill policy to tackle poachers targeting rhino and elephants in the country. His call for a new tougher stance against the poachers comes just days after Mozambique declared that the Limpopo National Park lost its last 15 rhino to the poachers.With the rising demand for rhino horn and elephant ivory from China and Vietnam there is the real fear that the loss of rhino from the Limpopo National Park could just be the first in a line of national parks that will lose their populations.

Moatlhodi said that introducing the shoot-to-kill policy is essential to protect both the rhinos and the tourist trade of the country. Protecting the wildlife that the tourists come to see is essential if the country is to widen the strength of the economy and move beyond just being a diamond producing nation.He said that there are particular concerns for the rhinos and elephants of the Kasane region in the north of Botswana which is particularly popular with tourists.While the Botswana army has been deployed to patrol areas with high incidents of poaching particularly along the borders with Zambia and Namibia, Moatlhodi believes that giving permission to rangers, soldiers and police to shoot to kill while out on duty they will be much more effective at tackling the poachers.Saving the high profile species of elephants, rhino and gorillas will ensure that the growing tourism industry in the country has a long-term future.

Shocking 2013 rhino stats released
Posted by Deborah Schrenk (founder)

Johannesburg - Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa and Mozambican Tourism Minister Carvalho Muaria plan to take concrete action to combat rhino poaching, but the figures highlight the brazen disregard poachers continue to have.
SANParks released updated figures for 2013 on its website, showing the total number of rhino poached since the beginning of the year stands at 428 - with the figures in Limpopo increasing by 15 to 45 in this week alone.
The Kruger National Park has lost 267 rhino to poachers to date in 2013.
The number of rhino poached for their horns in North West since January 1, 2013, has risen to 48, while a total of 38 rhino have been killed in KwaZulu-Natal, 27 in Mpumalanga, 2 in the Eastern Cape and 1 in Gauteng.
A total of 122 suspected poachers have been arrested since January. Of these, 57 have been caught in the Kruger National Park. Five alleged receivers have been arrested.
SANParks says the Kruger National Park rangers made contact with a group of three poachers near Letaba. One poacher was wounded during the shootout and later died of his wounds. The other poachers managed to escape.
South Africans are urged to report incidents of poaching and tip-offs to the anonymous tip-off lines 0800 205 005, 08600 10111 or Crime-Line on 32211.

SIGN THE PETITION
To the leaders of the European Union:
As concerned global citizens we call on you to push members of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species to save rhinos by immediately suspending trade in all rhino products. Furthermore, enforcement measures should be strengthened and consumer countries must honour their promises to run far-reaching public awareness campaigns. Your action today can end deadly poaching and save the species from extinction.

805,500 have signed. Help us get to 1,000,000
Update: 9 April 2013
Our petition was delivered to the European Union before the UN's endangered species summit. Unfortunately, despite a big win for elephants when the Thai government announced they would suspend the Ivory trade, the summit did not deliver meaningful action to save our Rhinos. But there will be more opportunities to work together to protect the last remaining rhinos. With hope, the Avaaz team.
The rhino is being hunted into extinction and could disappear forever unless we act now. Shocking new statistics show 440 rhinos were brutally killed last year in South Africa alone -- a massive increase on five years ago when just 13 had their horns hacked off. European nations could lead the world to a new plan to save these amazing creatures but they need to hear from us first!

Fueling this devastation is a huge spike in demand for rhino horns, used for bogus cancer cures, hangover remedies and good luck charms in China and Vietnam. Protests from South Africa have so far been ignored by the authorities, but Europe has the power to change this by calling for a ban on all rhino trade -- from anywhere, to anywhere -- when countries meet at the next crucial international wildlife trade summit in July.

The situation is so dire that the threat has even spread into British zoos who are on red-alert for rhino killing gangs! Let’s raise a giant outcry and urge Europe to push for new protections to save rhinos from extinction. When we reach 100,000 signers, our call will be delivered in Brussels, the decision-making heart of Europe, with a crash of cardboard rhinos. Every 50,000 signatures will add a rhino to the crash -- bringing the size of our movement right to the door of EU delegates as they decide their position. Sign the petition on the right then spread this campaign widely.

http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/SAY_NO_TO_LEGALIZING_TRADE_IN_RHINO_HORN/?fSrXhdb&pv=28

Why this is important

The pro-trade lobby has tried to justify rhino horn trade in economic terms. These justifications are based on flawed & dangerous assumptions and often proposed by those with a vested financial interest in trade.

Legalizing trade will prevent poaching - On the contrary, legalizing trade has the potential to increase poaching to unsustainable levels by increasing demand and potentially even raising prices which will see a decline in rhinoceros populations. At face value, legalizing trade could bring much needed funding to South African National Parks and reserves. Notwithstanding the real risks and unintended consequences it would be morally reprehensible, highly irregular and irresponsible to promote trade at anytime into the foreseeable future before other more sustainable sources of revenue are thoroughly investigated.

Demand will remain stable - Advocates of legalized trade predict that free trade will increase supply to such an extent that prices will drop. This prediction relies on a dangerous assumption that demand will not grow significantly in the future and that there is enough horn to satisfy demand. When illegal markets are legalized, new consumers enter the market thereby increasing demand, possibly even raising prices. The incentive to cease illegal trade fails when prices rise. The truth is, demand data is inaccurate or unknown, and arguments about lowering prices by increasingly supply only hold true if demand is predictable.

All trade will be legal - Advocates of trade suggest that legal rhino horn sold through a Centralized Selling Organization (CSO) will eradicate illegal trade on the black market. However, restrictions on market participants and the quantities sold will drive those excluded from legal horn trade underground. The black market will not be subject to any taxes and /or levies and will thus enjoy greater profitability. The notion that legalizing trade will eliminate illegal trade displays an ignorance of how organized crime works and is naïve at best.

On this basis alone any formal consideration of legalized trade is misguided, dangerous and could lead to increased demand and, ultimately, the extinction of the rhinoceros in the wild.

We call on the government of South Africa to take the precautionary route and reject any changes to the current annotations as set out in CITES Appendix II relating to the SA population of white rhino and not permit ANY commercial trade in rhino horn.

To Environment Minister Edna Molewa;

We call on you to reject calls to legalise trade in rhino horn products. As the rhino population dwindles and poaching is on the rise, we call on South Africa to protect the majestic species.
