Rhino anti-poaching campaign, an update

IMG_0262 (1280x960)The Washington Post has published an excellent article on the different measures and equipment being used to combat rhino poaching in South Africa, but also noting that poachers are also learning and that the number of rhinos poached has increased again this year.  Click here to read the article.  Smart phones, drones, predictive mathematical modelling, negative advertising, dyes and nausea inducing chemicals is all in part of it.  Even legalization of trade is an alternative under consideration.  Even so, as cvheerden has pointed out, this week’s news reported the “Last rhinos in Mozambique killed by poachers” including Mozambique game rangers in the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park which is the park shared with South Africa and Zimbabwe.  Kruger Park is South Africa’s portion of the Transfrontier Park.  Further information about Mozambique and Limpopo Park poaching is available here.
